The elementary music teachers of Bradley County Schools are pleased to announce the celebration of music in our schools month with the Seventh Annual Bradley County Honor Choir performance on Thursday, March 1.  This free community performance will be held at 6:30 pm in the Westmore Church of God sanctuary. Ten students in fourth or fifth grades from each of the 11 county elementary schools will participate in the mass choir under the direction of guest clinician LuAnn Holden.

Holden is an associate professor of music education at Lee University and chair of the Department of Music Education. Her teaching responsibilities include vocal and choral methods courses and the supervision of student teachers. Holden earned the master of music education degree with an emphasis in choral music from Georgia State University.

She received the bachelor of music education degree from Wesleyan College in Macon, Ga. During the academic terms from fall 2006 through spring 2011, she served Lee University in an administrative role as Chair of the Department of Vocal Music. Before her work in higher education, Holden taught general music and choral music in K-12 public schools for 14 years in Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. She directed the Lee University Children’s Chorale from 1998 to 2004, and was the artistic director of the Chattanooga Girls’ Choir from fall 2004 through spring 2017. Holden frequently conducts state and regional honor choirs, adjudicates choral festivals, serves as a clinician for choir workshops and writes choral music reviews for publication in the Choral Journal. She was a member of the Atlanta Symphony Chorus, which at that time was conducted by the legendary Robert Shaw. Her professional memberships include American Choral Directors Association, the National Association for Music Education, Tennessee Music Educators Association and Choristers Guild.

 The mission of Bradley County Honor Choir is to enrich the lives of participating students and audiences by preparing the mind and body to make beautiful music through rehearsal and performance of high quality literature, and to unite the Bradley County community through the arts.
