Four hundred fifty singers comprise the five chorus classes that meet during the school day. Additionally, A Cappella and Camerata Singers employ an alternate lunch schedule to allow the formation of Men’s Ensemble and Varsity Women’s Ensemble, which also rehearse during the school day. Our Tour Choir rehearses during WEB’s from 1:15 pm – 2 pm.
Placement in Select Women’s Ensemble and A Cappella is by audition. The directors have total authority to make all audition placement decisions. At any time a student’s performance level (musical or rehearsal skills) does not meet the group level, the student may be given an alternative assignment until the student’s schedule changes or the problem is resolved.
