Learn to sing and develop musical skills by studying and performing high quality choral music of different genres. Challenging and varied repertoire from all over the world inspires students who love to sing.  Rehearsals are high energy and fast paced. The choir serves as an extension to area choral programs, fostering a high level of musical and personal achievement through the choral music experience.
