Our Choirs

Concert Choir is an auditioned mixed choir performing high quality SATB music throughout the school year.  Though most members are seniors and juniors, this class is open to students in any grade level.  Since it is a more rigorous ensemble, seniors in Concert Choir receive a weighted grade “honors credit.”  Students selected for Concert Choir must demonstrate strong sight-reading abilities in an audition held in March of the preceding school year.  Voice and/or piano lessons are encouraged for those interested in auditioning.
