PERFORMING ARTS COURSES

Chorus (0.5 credits)

Midland Chorus is a one-semester elective offered during the Fall. There are no auditions and singers of all levels are welcome. Students are given a broad musical education within the context of daily singing. Topics covered include music theory and history, sight-singing, vocal health and breath support, and musical listening skills. Students will learn general musical vocabulary with special emphasis on choral terms. The Midland Chorus performs regularly in chapel, during Alumni/ae and Parent weekends, and on Thanksgiving.

Theater (0.5 credits)  

Based in Midland’s minimalist outdoor theater, Midland’s drama program allows students to learn that the essential elements of theater are a director, an actor, and a script, and that no amount of flash can compensate for the discipline, cooperation, and attention to detail required to produce high-quality plays. Our shows are true community events, performed in or seen by every student and faculty member as well as many parents, alumni, and neighbors. Recent productions, some of them student-directed, have included works by Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov, Margaret Edson, David Ives, A.A. Milne, Dorothy Parker, and Thornton Wilder.
