Illiana Christian High School has many opportunities for students to get involved in 音乐艺术. One place students can grow their passions is through our multiple orchestral style bands. 交响乐团, 风合奏, and 管弦乐队 offer students a high-quality music education while encouraging them to glorify God with their gifts. We take immense pride in our music program and hope you find a place to join us!
Glorifying God through music is important for every student at ICHS. In Genesis 1:28 we are commanded to subdue the Earth. This implies that all areas of human endeavor should come under Christ’s domination. Students who attend Illiana Christian should see the glory of God in the 艺术 as well as all other areas of the curriculum. Students should see their talents as gifts of God, to be used for his glory, not just for entertainment, 自我满足, or any other reason.
The curriculum in the Music Department is designed to help the students become the musicians God intends them to be. Students will be given skills of 音乐才能, vocal and instrumental technique, and interpretation to glorify God throughout their adult life, 从而丰富了 Christian 社区. In the Music Department, individual skills are augmented with group dynamics.
The bands and choirs are specialized communities within the Christian 学术 社区. Students will be taught to have a responsible attitude toward other musicians, contributing their own talents to the good of the group. This includes 音乐才能, behavior towards others, a sense of responsibility toward the group and its objectives, and faithful attendance at all concerts.
