BETHLEHEM, PA– The award-winning music department of the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) will hold its much-anticipated Spring Choral Concert on Thursday, May 16, 2024 at 7 PM.

This stunning concert will feature the school’s 9/10 Choir, 11/12 Choir, Treble Choir, and Touring Choir with performances of significant and diverse repertoire. The concert will close with a combined finale performance of two pieces by Daniel Elder, ‘Lullaby’ and ‘Ballade to the Moon’. According to the school’s Artistic Director of Vocal Music, Erica Dickson: “These two pieces are very meaningful and have a long history of performance within the vocal department at Charter Arts.”

Tickets for the concert are $11 adult, $6 student/child, and can be purchased on the school website, CharterArts.org. The event will take place in the Charter Arts Theatre, located on the school’s campus at 321 East 3rd Street, Bethlehem.


Instrumental Music and Vocal Music are two distinct departments at Charter Arts. However, some of the courses are required of both majors while others are department-specific. Both departments offer a rigorous music education taught by award-winning and accomplished faculty.

The vocal music curriculum includes tracks in classical art song, musical theatre, and pop/contemporary that allow students to focus and hone their skills with one-on-one instruction by professional voice specialists.  In addition, the Singer/Songwriter track includes Songwriting, Music Production and Contemporary Music Performance Practices.

The instrumental music curriculum includes classes in classical, jazz, and contemporary music styles while performing in large ensembles that include Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Wind Ensemble and Contemporary Music Ensemble as well as small ensembles that include strings, guitar and percussion.  Students enjoy individual and small setting technique classes with a music faculty member who specializes in their instrument. These specialists include bass (electric and upright), brass, guitar, percussion, piano, strings, and woodwinds.


Charter Arts is an audition-based public charter school that provides a comprehensive curriculum for high school students, grades 9-12, who have a passion for the arts.   Students major in one of seven artistic areas: dance, instrumental music, literary arts, production arts, theatre, visual arts, or vocal music.

Charter Arts’ rigorous curriculum fosters both academic and artistic excellence for its students. The school’s impressive Future Ready PA Index ranking, Advanced Placement (AP) exam statistics, Keystone Exam statistics, SAT scores, prestigious artistic accolades, and graduation rate, are testaments to the outstanding education that Charter Arts provides.

Recently, Charter Arts was ranked #1 Best Charter High School in PA and  #2 Best Public High School Teachers in PA on Niche’s 2024 Best Schools in America Rankings.  In addition, Charter Arts was one of only four Lehigh Valley schools to be ranked in the Top 100 Public High Schools in PA on U.S. News & World Report’s 2024 Best Schools in America.
