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 Menâ€™s Ensemble and Varsity Womenâ€™s Ensemble, which also rehearse during the school day. Our Tour Choir rehearses during WEBâ€™s from 1:15 pm â€“ 2 pm.
Placement in Select Womenâ€™s Ensemble and A Cappella is by audition. The directors have total authority to make all audition placement decisions. At any time a studentâ€™s performance level (musical or rehearsal skills) does not meet the group level, the student may be given an alternative assignment until the studentâ€™s schedule changes or the problem is resolved.
