    1. Course Description:

      Students grades 9-12 are welcome to take this course. The intent of the program is to introduce and expose students to all aspects of vocal music, providing a forum in which they will learn to participate in, observe, critique and appreciate the different styles of vocal music.

       

    2. Required Text & Materials:

      Concert Attire (see “Concert Attire” on webpage)

    4. Late-Work & Make-up Policy:

      Students should make every effort to not be absent from class.  The MHS Chorus is a performing group and the attendance of every member is critical to the quality of the final performances.
