The Choir at ThornCreek Christian School has students at all levels of music knowledge working together to showcase their vocal skills during their two performances, one at Christmas and the other in the Spring. Throughout each semester, they work on their repertoire for the concerts, on technique, and on theory.

All students are expected to know/learn basic music theory. Some music history is introduced and students are exposed to different styles of music. Both secular and sacred music is learned with a heavy emphasis on singing songs that glorify the Lord. Learning and laughing are required.
