Lift Ev'ry Voice
Lift Ev'ry Voice, for children ages 4 - 5th grade, is an hour-long Sunday morning music program introducing the splendor and beauty of hymns sung at Duke Chapel to children ages 4 through 5th graders. Each Sunday a new hymn and gospel song will be sung, paired with an interactive bible story incorporating puppets and felt board. Each lesson is based in the scripture, and employs Kodaly, Orff and Dalcroze methods of music education. Your child will be encouraged to explore his or her musicality by means of listening, phonemic awareness, singing, playing barred accompaniment and rhythm instruments, and through movement games and dance. Throughout the summer, children will create their own "hymnal" which they will take home when classes end in August.
