Choir goes on an annual tour in the spring! Our tours have taken us all over the country to places such as New York, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, and Nashville. Travel has been a thrilling part of singing together and is a perk of being in such an exceptional group. In addition to performing in world class venues we do adventerous activities like zip lining through a forest at night in Nashville, climbing a high ropes course in San Luis Opbisbo, and scenic hikes in the mountains.

Performing is the highlight of learning music! All four choirs perform in three traditional performances over the course of the year; Fall Concert, Winter Concert, and Spring Concert. Additionally, the entire program takes part in our theater show "Knights on Broadway". Students put on a full fledged musical review complete with costumes and choreography. The run of the Knights Shows is often described by our students as their favorite time of the year! Futhermore, each choir takes part in performing at choral festivals and choral exchanges. This is where Foothill choirs meet other high school and college choirs in the area and get to hear several groups perform as well as perform themselves! Lastly, students in choir are afforded several extra performance opportunities such as Open Mic Night and the Fall Enderle Center performance. Here students can sing solos, duets and small group numbers for our local community.

College and University
Participating in a performing art looks excellent on student transcripts! Colleges and universities are looking for well rounded individuals who are active in student life and the arts. Moreover, students who study music achieve higher scores on standardized tests, develop higher IQs, achieve enhanced language development, and find themselves excelling in majors such as architecture, engineering, and the sciences. Studies show that music education develops a spacial intelligence that facilitates problem solving skills. Because of this, many universities now have a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Pre-Med degree. Universities acknowledge the importance of music education and weigh it heavily in determining school admission. Students who become advanced in the vocal arts have opportunities to earn scholarships and internships at institutions and their abilities will set them apart from the rest. All four choirs at Foothill satisfy the "G" category of the A-G college requirements for UCs and Cal States.
