Choir is an elective class open to any student.  Choir meets one period during the school day.   7th Grade Choir is a beginning ensemble group that focuses on fundamental music reading skills.  8th Grade Choir Symphonic Choir builds on the skills learned in 7th Grade choir allowing the students to perform more difficult pieces and attend the OMEA Large Group Adjudicated Event in Spring.  Both choirs give four evening concerts per year and will participate in the OMEA competition in May.  School evaluation is in the form of letter grades and is based on participation and effort in rehearsals and attendance at concerts and contest.

Spark of Class is a show choir comprised of singers/dancers, instrumentalists, and crew members who perform a wide variety of popular music in concert, community, festival and competition settings.  This is an auditioned group.
