The Harpeth Hall music department includes music from a variety of cultures, countries, languages, and creeds within our curriculum, reflecting the fact that we are a diverse community sharing a common love of music in its many forms. We have seven middle and upper school choirs, a combined upper school choir with the Montgomery Bell Academy, an a cappella group and extracurricular opportunities.
- 5th and 6th Grade Choir
- 7th and 8th Grade Choir
- Advanced 7th and 8th Grade Choir
- Upper School Concert Choir
- Upper School Chamber Choir
This non-auditioned group rehearses in small ensembles by grade, but performs as a collective group. There is an emphasis on performance techniques, music literacy, and in repertoire from a variety of cultural sources. Students in this choir typically perform at Sunday on Souby and perform in their biannual concert with the upper school.
The Concert Choir is open to all students. The Choir presents a variety of concerts, both on and off campus, including joint performances with the Montgomery Bell Academy chorus. Repertoire includes choral literature from all musical periods and styles. In addition to concert preparation, vocal technique, sight-reading, and ensemble skills are emphasized in rehearsals. Students will receive a grade based upon concert and classroom performance. Note: Students are required to purchase a uniform dress.
The Chamber Choir is a small ensemble that represents the school for engagements both on and off campus. Membership is by audition only. The repertoire includes a variety of musical styles, and rehearsals emphasize vocal technique and ensemble skills as well as solo work. Students receive a grade based upon classroom and concert performance. Note: Students are required to purchase a uniform dress.
Lads 'n' Plaid is an auditioned group of both Harpeth Hall girls and Montgomery Bell Academy boys in grades 9-12. By the very nature of having women and men perform together, students from both schools are able to perform complex "SATB" literature beyond what can normally be done during the school day.
