Welcome to Choral Program at SBA
The choral program at SBA is an awesome place to experience the fine arts and to be a part of something unique and rewarding here at SBA. Students who participate in our choirs come from every walk of life, and all of them energetically love being a part of this program. Choir students are offered opportunities to perform, travel, as well as participate in All West, All State, Chorale Festival, and other regional events. Our performers are not just musicians; they are also athletes, students involved in government, ambassadors, and much more. Choir is for everyone, and we would love to have you as part of the family.
Concert Choir is the foundation and backbone of the SBA Choral Program. Students in Concert Choir do not audition in the formal sense of the word: all are welcome from 9th-12th grade. Entrance to Concert Choir is based primarily on the student meeting with the director for a very brief and informal session so that the student can find out about the program, expectations, and responsibilities involved. Concert Choir is a performing and traveling choir. Students are expected to purchase a uniform (tux/dress) and to be able to travel from school to various events. The choir performs a wide range of literature from Medieval music to 20th Century a cappella choral, as well as world music, tribal, and other unique forms. Concert Choir is a family and great place to be each day; we want you!
Women’s Chorale is an auditioned group for female students: space is limited (14-20 members). The ensemble is open to any female student grades 10th-12th who wishes to audition, regardless of prior experience in choirs (all freshman must take Concert Choir for one year before auditioning for Women’s Chorale). Women’s Chorale is a performing and traveling choir. Students are expected to purchase a dress and to be able to travel from school to various events. The choir performs a wide range of literature from Medieval music to 20th Century a cappella choral, as well as world music, tribal, and other unique forms. Women’s Chorale is very much a sisterhood – the girls in the group become quite close. It’s a warm and special class, and we would love to have you.
