Vocal Music Opportunities at TKA
Students who enjoy singing have a myriad of opportunities to receive vocal coaching, to gain performing experience, and to express themselves musically. We offer a mixed choir, The King’s Chorus, for students in grades 7-12, that is a non-audition group. The King's Chorus sings at three concerts throughout the year as well as take part in other events. Students in grades 9-12 who really love to sing and dance can audition for a small select ensemble called "Knightshine."

This waiver will be available each year during 9th - 10th grade if the student is enrolled in a World Languages course (in addition to the VPA class). The waiver is applicable at The King’s Academy only and is not transferable to other schools, should the student transfer.
