Choirs

Students interested in vocal music will find ample opportunities to become involved at Hill-Murray. The choral music program offers elective courses for grades 6-12. The courses focus on vocal technique, musicianship, reading skills, performance practice, and life-long learning that students can take to college.


Students who choose choir in middle school and high school perform throughout the year at school Masses, concerts at Hill-Murray, as well as venues outside of the school, and at other events and performances.
