Chorus has more than 85 singers in it this year! The songs we sing are from varied genres including pop, early Rock and Roll, festival pieces, traditional, spirituals, and patriotic. We also use lots of choreography in many of our pieces. We are often asked to sing at different events in the community in addition to our scheduled school performances. We also perform at Disneyland. This will be our 22nd year to perform there. The choir represents students from diverse backgrounds who come each morning during zero period to sing songs, and learn a deeper appreciation and love for music.
Our Disneyland trip is scheduled for March. Please see Mr. Haire for specific details.
