Pop Icons Fall
Students pick a genre or artist of their liking and then participate in weekly supervised rehearsals of music chosen. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy. All instruments as well as singers welcome! Students who participate in Pop-Icons will have opportunities to perform both, in and out of the school, throughout the year.
