WELCOME, NEW CHOIR MEMBERS!

Welcome videos from WC Choir members at bottom of page!

You can easily fit choir into your schedule.  Sign up for both semesters (either concert choir/advanced concert choir or concert choir/women’s chorale). Just move Lifetime Wellness to next year – it is NOT required for 9th graders.  It is that simple!

Most choir members take choir every semester of their high school career and many graduate with honors and distinction.  The majority pursue other areas of study after high school, but gain the benefits of dedication to a performing group when applying to college or for scholarships.

College and university music departments sometimes offer a scholarship for participation in choir, even if you are a non-music major!

Contact Mrs. Morin at wilsoncentralchoirs@gmail.com if you have any issues with adding choir to your schedule for next year.
