Chorus is a full-year class open to any high school student who enjoys singing. The class meets every day and includes physical and vocal warm-ups, vocal calisthenics, a practice song, and working through the repertoire.
Students are exposed to and learn songs from a variety of genres: classical, jazz, pop, Broadway, opera, to name a few. They gain the experience of singing in other languages and collaborate with other musical groups and clubs at the high school.
Chorus also participates in fund-raisers, welcoming commuters at the train station for the citrus sale in November, and offering “Singing Grams” for Valentine’s Day.
In addition to the scheduled winter and spring concerts and competing in the Music in the Parks festival in June, Chorus has prepared an audition tape (see below) with the hope of singing the national anthem at local arenas, stadiums, and other sports venues. They also provide entertainment at the Golden Circle Senior Citizens luncheon in October, the GRHS Chinese New Year celebration in January, and various other school and community events.
