Simi Valley High School

Choral Music Department

Director: Brittney Wescamillo

Simi Valley High School has a rich choral history, spanning across many decades. We have three main choir classes: Concert Choir, Vocal Ensemble, and Vocal Jazz Choir. Concert Choir is an entry-level group that performs a wide variety of styles, Vocal Ensemble is an auditioned, intermediate group made up of treble voices, and Vocal Jazz is a rigorous, auditioned group that focuses mainly on advanced jazz & contemporary pop arrangements. In addition, Men's Choir and Show Choir are voluntary, non-graded groups that meet at lunch time 1-2 times per week. All Simi High Choir groups enjoy performing frequently on-campus, in the community, and in choral festivals of various destinations each year.


Our Fall Concert, Around the World in 80 minutes, was a smashing success!


On Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 the Jazzcamillos performed at the SCVA Vocal Jazz & A Cappella Festival at Valencia High School. We received great feedback from clinician, Cindy Dicken!

On Thursday, March 7th, our choirs participated in the Simi Valley District Choral Festival. Our Jazzcamillos earned a Superior Rating, Concert Choir earned an Excellent rating, and Vocal Ensemble was only half a point a way from a Superior rating!
