Concert Choir Now Open to ALL!

To include more students in the act of making music, we are drawing the circle wider by immediately eliminating the audition requirement for the Concert Choir this year. Professor De La Rosa has taught choir for many years and can teach anyone to read music and sing in a group. Come experience the joy of singing this Fall.
