Choral music goes to the heart of our humanity

Notable composer and conductor John Rutter, one of the greats of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, maintains that choral music is not “one of life’s frills”; rather a school or a church without a choir is like a body without a soul.

Hear his 4 minute rumination on the importance of music here.  Well worth the time!

Rutter’s works include: “For the Beauty of the Earth” (we’ve performed it); Requiem; and “Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind” (we’ve performed this one, too).

At Tempe Preparatory Academy we want all of our students to experience singing in a choir–and parents to experience hearing their students creating glorious choral art.
