High School Mixed Chorus  

Mr. Zagare, Director
Mixed Chorus is offered as a class during the school day.  There is no audition to get in, but you must be recommended by your previous year's music teacher in order to get into the class.  We study and perform all genres of music.  Our repertoire ranges anywhere from Pop and Broadway to music from the Classical period.  The chorus performs in three concerts through the year.  These include the Winter, Pop's Concert and the Spring Concert.  A lot of time is spent on building up music literacy skills, especially sight-singing.  Students who excel in this class are encouraged to perform in the NYSSMA festival.
