WHO ARE WE?

Together, we will strive to build a choral music "legacy" at Hough, marked by expectations at a very high standard. Each individual singer is an important part of the pursuit, and all groups of valued equally.

Beginning & Intermediate Choirs

The Hough Beginning & Intermediate Choirs (Chorus 1 & 2) develop foundations essential for effective musicianship. This is usually the entry point for incoming singers and their initial involvement in the Hough choral experience, with common rehearsal and performance expectations held for other groups.

Concert & Women's Chamber Choirs

The Hough Concert & Women's Chamber Choirs explore a variety of music repertoire throughout the school year, including music from other cultures sung in various languages. As the year progresses, the foundations of good vocal techniques, vocal health, sight reading, musicianship, etc. will be built upon previous skills. Opportunities will be offered for solos, regional choruses, and smaller specialty groups - on and off-campus - for students in good academic standing.

Show Choir

The Hough Show Choir, quite simply, puts on a show. The group's strength lies in high-energy performances, gaining high-energy response from the audience. Sound and sight elements are equally important, as students present a fresh "live" sound with each performance.

Participants are more concerned with overall projection and clear harmonies than sophisticated musical nuances. Because choreography is usually complex, choral parts are often less demanding that those of a traditional jazz or acapella choir. It is not uncommon for a show choir to sing a large portion of its show in unison, occasionally breaking into harmonic chords. Performers may be accompanied by a small jazz combo or recorded instrumentation that has been produced professionally. Music of all popular styles may be used in programming, although pop, rock and Broadway show tunes fit the choreographic plan more naturally.
