Homestead’s vocal music program is open to all students, regardless of musical experience. We offer three year-long classes to accommodate the different ability levels of our students. All choir classes meet the district, CSU, and UC Fine Arts requirement. The choirs perform at school and community events, as well as at festivals and exchange concerts.
B- Choir is open to all students in all grades and is designed for all students to succeed. In this choir, students learn music fundamentals and progresses towards singing in tune and expanding vocal range. They sing at school concerts only.
Advanced Treble Choir and A-Choir are for singers who have the ability to match pitch over an octave range and seek a more sophisticated choral experience. Individually, each student works towards improving their vocal production and musical literacy; collectively, they work to shape fine choral music. The Advanced Treble Choir is for girls in 9th and 10th grade. A-Choir, the concert choir, is designed for 11th - 12th grade girls, select 10th grade girls who have completed a year of Advanced Treble Choir, and qualifying boys of all grades. Registration for either choir requires an audition.
The Small Mixed Vocal Ensemble is by audition only for Juniors and Seniors who have sung at least one year in A-Choir. In addition to performing classical choral literature, this class also performs vocal jazz repertoire. This is a highly selective group that requires an extensive audition. Contact Dr. Morton for the audition materials and to set up an audition.
