Welcome to EPHS Choir!

In the 2019-2020 school year we are proud to offer eight academic choir classes to over 300 students.  Most choirs meet every day for a half period. Students are free to explore small ensemble experiences, sign up for voice lessons, take a corresponding band or orchestra or use the remaining time for unsupervised study in the East Commons, Media Center, or Resource Centers.  Successful choir students earn 1 credit per semester for choir.

It is with pride and pleasure that we look forward to musically challenging each child as best we can.  With your help and encouragement, we know that we will collectively reach new heights in exploring the world of human expression through singing. 

"I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we, too, will be remembered not for victories or defeats in battle or in politics, but for our contribution to the human spirit."
