Winter 2013 Choral Update
Class Sign Ups are coming up quick. Don't miss an opportunity to make life long friends, express yourself, travel the country and the world, and discover your voice. Incoming students can sign up for Chorale, or if they have previous experience and are female, Women's Ensemble. The latter requires a screening with Bruce to determine the best ensemble for your student.

Alumni Testimonial
"Choir was the one place on campus I could let all of my guards down, and just be myself. I started out a timid stereotypical freshman who couldn't imagine ever singing solo, but because of choir I am now a strong and confident vocal performance major. I have gained life long friends, a confidence in my voice and who I am, unforgettable memories, and an absolute love for music from the four years in multiple choirs. I am who I am today because of choir, and for that I am truly thankful." Matt Mannion Class of 2012, currently attending Western Washington University pursuing a double major in Special Education and Music Performance.
