The 16-20 member Chamber Choir is open to experienced vocal musicians in grades 10-12. Auditions are held in the spring for admission into the next year's Chamber Choir. This is a performance class with high expectations and regular performance opportunities throughout the school year. A broad variety of musical styles are studied and performed, with an emphasis on close harmonies and scapula skills. Membership in the camber choir is a prerequisite for application to district festivals and All-State.
All music is provided. Students will be required to have concert attire for performances. Boys will need to purchase black dress pants and tux shirts. Girls will need to purchase the approved black concert dress in September.
Students will be expected to participate in all rehearsals by actively learning their music and allowing others to do the same. Performance attendance is mandatory and constitutes a significant portion of student assessment. Students will perform in a variety of concerts throughout the school year and are expected to arrive on time for vocal warm ups, in performance attire, with notes and words memorized.
