Because spots in the Madrigal Singers and Advanced Treble Ensemble are high in demand but few in number, Mrs. Dehn cannot always place everyone that she would like to in the ensembles. Even if they do not make the ensemble, students are encouraged to continue to sing and practice, and consider participation one of our two concert choirs or Bass Choir.

**Upon acceptance, students are given a packet of music to learn over the summer, and are expected to come prepared to sing on the first day of school in September.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Requirements

​The biggest requirement is to have a good attitude, and have fun! Choir is a great way to get performing arts credit and have a good time. The students' favorite part of the year is usually the Knights Theater, where they get to perform their favorite songs from the radio, broadway, and movies. No previous singing experience is required!

A syllabus with mandatory commitment date will be given out upon acceptance, and again during the first week of school.

Students accepted into an auditioned Honors choir (Madrigals or Advanced Women's Ensemble) are required to learn the given summer repertiore by the first week of school.
