Concert Choir

ALL Freshman (gents), Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students who have an interest in singing are encouraged to enroll in CONCERT CHOIR! This class does not require an audition and is an excellent place to enhance your vocal music education.

NOTE: Freshman women are placed in an ensemble comparable to this one – Freshman Choir! See that webpage for details.

For each day of class, you will receive a Zoom link in your Google Calendar (you will get it via email). Please note there will be a PASSCODE for each of these meetings! If you are with us virtually, you will join us that way. If not, I will see you in the classroom. Either way, I look forward to seeing you very soon!

-Performance Attire-

[NOTE: For the 2020-21 school year, students will NOT be asked to purchase concert attire through the school. We will perform in simple clothing items that can most likely be found at home.]

All Concert Choir members purchase their own Concert Attire through the school. Details about this will be given to students in class and emailed to students and parents within the first month of school.

Concert Choir women will choose their own shoes. They must be formal and all black with a small heel, if any. They may be open or closed-toed.

Concert Choir men may choose their own black formal shoes if they wish, or they may purchase them through the school. They do NOT have to be patent vinyl.

We offer a fundraising opportunity for those who wish to offset the cost of their clothing. This is a direct sale in which the individual who is purchasing attire reaps the sole monetary benefit.

Please see the forms below for more details:
