Heartland Sings proactively supports choral directors in reaching their Fine Arts Standards goals through our Side-By-Side program and Fine Arts Presentations. Our Fine Arts programs are available to students of all ages - elementary through college.
In the Side-By-Side programs, Heartland Sings provides the opportunity for students to work alongside professional musicians. We customize the Side-By-Side programs to the needs of your school. Most programs include a set number of rehearsals, followed by one performance where we sing Side-By-Side with your students! Rehearsals can focus on (but are not limited to) sectionals, vocal health, movement, or foreign language preparation.
Our Fine Arts Presentations provide 50-minute classes on a variety of topics. Heartland Sings can support your goals through specialized classes on vocal anatomy and health, movement and acting, introductions to musical genres, or foreign language assistance through the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Fine Arts Presentations often include a mini performance to exemplify the topic.
Heartland Sings is also an active participant in the Three Rivers Choral Festival. Each fall, Heartland Sings partners with the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir and the IPFW Choral Department to participate in choral workshops and a performance. In 2017 Heartland Sings will collaborate with Bluffton High School, North Side High School - Fort Wayne, & Concordia Lutheran High School, the FWCC Youth Chorale, and IPFW University Singers.
