Concert choir

ABOUT

Singers age 13 -18, who have considerable vocal experience and love of choral music, study challenging music as they master their vocal and music skills as well as pursue personal growth while contributing to their music community.

 

Concert Choir members receive a unique combination of expertise and encouragement needed to make music a rewarding, life-long adventure. The Choir is often invited to sing with leading symphony orchestras, in performances of major works, and tour both nationally and internationally.

 

This is an audition-only ensemble, which requires solid commitment and motivation.

More information is available in our Choir Handbook.

Concert Choir boys and choristers identifying as boys are also able to join our Boys' Ensemble at no additional cost. Learn more here.
