At Beckman Catholic High School, we offer a variety of choral activities for the students. The students are challenged to always do their best and are encouraged to share their God-given talents with the school, community, and parish.

The Chamber Choir performs at four major concerts during the school year, performance tours at the local elementary schools and assisted living center, and honor choir performances.
Troubadours (Bass Choir)
A Troubadour is a poet who who writes verse to music, particularly about courtly love. While our Troubadours don't always sing about love, these gentlemen sing with great passion and enthusiasm! Gentlemen in grades 8-12 are welcome to participate in this energetic ensemble. The Troubadours perform at each major concert event throughout the school year and provide great entertainment for everyone!
Jr. High Choir
The Jr. High Choir is open to all interested seventh and eighth grade students at Beckman Catholic. This is an important ensemble as it teaches the singers how to perform together as an ensemble and sing in 2-, 3-, or even 4-part harmony. Students in Jr. High Choir also participate in a class Choir Idol competition to help students gain confidence and comfort performing for others alone and with others. The Jr. High Choir performs once per quarter.
