Meet Ms. Carr Faculty spotlight: An interview with Ms. Hannah Carr, Choral Director
Hannah Carr joined Beaver as the Choral Director at the start of the 2013-14 school year. In just one school year, she has revolutionized the choral curriculum, adding two new choir groups as well as a new class on choral music theory. And that’s just beginning. “I would love to have an all-male chorus, an all-female chorus, a co-ed chorus, advanced ensembles to take to competitions – basically a wide-range of entry levels for students,” Carr said. Read more from the interview, which is featured in our 2014-15 Performing Arts brochure. To request a copy of the brochure, email admissions@bcdschool.org.
