Chapel Band US 7-8

Grade Levels: 7-8 grade musicians and vocalists
Purpose: Chapel Band is a group of self motivated musically inclined students who have a heart for worship. This group leads worship music during Upper School 7-8 chapels. It's a great opportunity to play music, connect with others, develop leadership skills, and grow as a worshipper. Chapel Team members:
  1. Practice as a group and on their own
  2. Maintain a music binder for provided copies of chord sheets
  3. Help set up all equipment before school on chapel day
  4. Lead worship during chapel
  5. Help clean up all equipment after chapel

Months: September - June
Practices / Performances: Depending on participation and individual availability, members may be divided into rotating teams that lead worship every 2 to 3 chapels starting in September. Students may be assigned to multiple teams (or asked to help out more) depending on ability and availability.

On your week your schedule would be:
  • Rehearsals on Sunday evening from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. (Combined Gr 7-12)
  • Sound Checks occur at 7:30 a.m. on chapel day
  • Chapel occurs during the school day on Fridays

Practice Location:

MSL Campus: Lindner Theater for practice; Founder's Campus gym for worship

Cost: Free
Anticipated # of Students: 10; students are divided into worship teams that rotate leading worship

Expected Parent Involvement:
  • Encouragement and transportation to early morning and practice report times.
  • Help your child proactively communicate changes in availability or commitments that would impact involvement in chapel band.
Notes:
  • Instrumentalists must bring their own instruments and equipment (amps, picks, cables, etc.); drums and keyboards are provided
  • Since Chapel Band learns new music about every week, students should be very confident in their knowledge of their instrument and/or vocal ability before audition
