Welcome to all students and families to the GHS Choral Department.  I strongly believe that the arts are an important part of our lives and your commitment to include music as a part of your education shows your dedication toward a balanced and very challenging experience.  A person who studies music reinforces teamwork, communication skills, self-discipline, and creativity, all qualities students need to be successful in their other schoolwork.  Music is an integral part of human history.  The ability of a student to participate and listen with understanding is essential to gain a broad cultural and historical perspective.  The life of every music student is enriched by skills and knowledge acquired through the study of music as a fundamental component of the school curriculum.
