The Choirs of Walther Christian Academy are devoted to continuing the Lutheran Church’s long tradition of choral music intended to encourage congregational song and enhance worship. Almost thirty percent of Walther’s student body is involved in the choral program, which includes beginning, intermediate, and advanced curricular and extracurricular choirs.
The Concert Choir provides a starting point for young singers to focus on fundamental skills such as music reading, healthy vocal technique and confidence in performing. The Gospel Choir and Praise Band provide music for worship at Walther. Chamber Choir, A Cappella, and Christian Minstrels are the advanced auditioned choral ensembles which tour biennially, provide music for worship at Lutheran churches in and around the Chicago area, lead Lutheran grade school chapel services regularly throughout the school year, and record for Worship Anew, a Lutheran Media Ministry.
The choirs are comprised of freshmen through senior students who, though of varied backgrounds and musical experiences, are centered around a common goal: sharing the gift of Christ’s love expressed through music.
