Selah is a dedicated group of 4th and 5th grade students who have elected to join and commit to an elementary choir. This is a voluntary program and offers students the opportunity to learn about vocal technique, choral practices, and gain performance experience.
Choir members come together and rehearse twice a week in order to prepare for the performances they give throughout the year. These performances included the FCS “Sounds of Christmas” Concert, participating in the Glendora Christmas Parade, and the FCS Spring Concert. Song selections include a variety of genres and difficulty levels, and all represent the values and beliefs that FCS holds as a Christian institution.
The purpose of Selah is to provide training and tools for students to not only learn about singing, but also to discover a deeper and richer aspect of worship through music.
Zoe Strzemieczny is Foothill's elementary general music teacher and Selah choir director.
Zoe received classical musical training and is a versatile vocalist. She is eager to train students in multiple genres/styles of music such as pop, Broadway, classical, soul, and more. Zoe grew up singing classically and participated in multiple vocal competitions such as the Certificate of Merit Program, the Southern California VOCE competitions, and various musical theater productions. Currently, Zoe leads worship at her church and is passionate about raising up worshippers in spirit and in truth. Through vocal lessons, she wants to equip students with the proper tools to become confident vocalists who use their gifts and skills to glorify God.
