High School Choir
High School Vocal Ensemble
High School Vocal Ensemble is an elective designed to provide vocally talented students a place to grow in their abilities. Students are exposed to a wide range of musical genres, and continuously refine their vocal techniques. Each year the group participates in music festivals such as D'Accordo Choral Festival and Music USA that challenge students to excel in the talents that God has given them. The Music and Ministry Tour is a highlight of each year for this group. Our concerts provide enjoyment for both our school family and for the community.
Philippians 2:2 Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
First Baptist Academy hosted d’Accordo Music Festival, an inaugural choir festival where middle school choirs from faith-based, private schools in Collier County came together in one accord to make music for His glory! Over 65 students gathered to sing under the direction of guest conductor, Todd Peterson, Choral Director at Barron Collier High School. Mr. Peterson enjoys connecting with students, sharing his faith and his passion for music. Uniting in one accord, these students took part in a “big choir” experience, improved their vocal and ensemble techniques, shared in fellowship with students from other faith-based schools and used their voices to let us all hear a glimpse of God’s glory through their beautiful sound.
