Foothill High School Choral Music Program
The Foothill High School Choral Music Program was formed by Eward J. Doyle in 1963, the year the school opened. Doyle was a very important figure at Foothill and is most notably recognized for composing the school's Alma Mater. After 21 years of building a fine choral music program, Doyle retired. In 1985, director Sharon Herzog succeeded Doyle, followed by David Peay in 1991. Chelsea Dehn joined the Foothill team in 2005 and has enjoyed teaching in the Tustin Unified School District ever since.

Currently, Foothill's Choral Music Program consists of four ensembles: two entry level choirs (Bass Choir and Concert Choir) and two auditioned choirs (Madrigal Singers and Advanced Treble Ensemble).
Through the study of choral repertoire from various time periods, cultures, and genres, students build skills and become knowledgeable in music theory, sight reading, vocal pedagogy, and music history. The Foothill choirs are an inclusive group of individuals from diverse backgrounds that aim to develop community through their common love of music.
