Odle Middle School Choir

December 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 6:45 pm

We are thrilled to have Odle Middle School Choir showcase their talents this year at the Bellevue Festival of the Nativity.

Odle’s choir director is Joanne Whang. This is her 16th year of teaching and 12th year in the Bellevue School District. She studied vocal music (Masters of Music from University of Southern California) and performed in an opera, Rome, Italy. She also studied piano, choral music and conducting. She also finished her 2nd Masters of Education from Seattle Pacific University. Mrs. Whang and her husband have two children, Allison (13) and Jonathan (10). Allison started her 8th grade at Odle this year and Jonathan is in 5rd grade at Somerset.

The Choir’s Primary goals are:

  • Develop the singing voice through sight-singing, vocal techniques (including breath) and use of diction, blend, articulation, phrasing, and tone quality
  • Appreciate various styles of music ranging from different cultures, periods and forms
  • Encourage a high quality of performance through goal-oriented rehearsals and practice
