Beginning/Intermediate Chorus


Advanced Chorus



Musical Theater




Chorus is a full-year elective for all sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. Chorus has four different levels: beginning, intermediate, advanced, and musical theatre. Through a variety of musical styles, chorus will teach students singing techniques, elements of music, and much more. Students in chorus will learn many new skills such as singing posture, solfege, pitch, and rhythm. They will see the connection between hard work, self discipline, responsibility, confidence, and communication. Students will be able to learn these skills, and many others as well, while in chorus.


Students in chorus will participate in many performances and concerts throughout the year. Some of these performances are for the school, others are for families, and a few are for the general public. There will also be a few field trips that will be incorporated into the semesters. A few of the concerts include the Winter Concert, Spring Concert, and the Musical Theatre Performance. Students might also perform in the All City Festival, San Francisco Youth Festival, a holiday event at Union Square, and many more to come.
