Course Description:

Academy Choral 3 is a curricular continuation of Academy Choral 2, and it is available to all students who both successfully complete Academy Chorale 1 and 2 AND receive instructor approval.  Students who receive an incomplete or failing grade in Academy Chorale 1 or 2 will not be allowed to enroll.
