The Morton Elementary Chorus is a collection of students from all district grade schools. We learn basic singing technique, posture, proper vowel shapes and breathing techniques, as well as how to blend the sound of many voices and parts into one unified sound. We participate in every Morton Junior High Choir concert, as well as the Dunlap music festival, Arts in the Park in downtown Peoria, and other singing engagements as they arise. We have a great time preparing and performing our pieces for any and all who are interested in coming out to see us. Hope to see you at a concert!
