Welcome to the NUACS choral dapartment!!!
"Music is the voice of the soul."
"Teaching means sharing the knowledge of what you love.
Hopefully, this knowledge impacts students' lives in a positive way, helping them to grow physically,
intellectually and spiritually. In choir, students work with all three – the physicality of singing,
the processing of how music works, and the voice as a gift from God." Mrs. Sweeney
