Varsity Choir

Varsity Choir is an advanced level vocal ensemble of soprano, alto, tenor, and bass voices. Singers in this ensemble are dedicated to singing and studying choral music from a variety of time periods and cultures, training their voices in healthy singing technique, and learning and applying elements of music theory. Varsity Choir students are committed to serving as leaders in South Music by encouraging and affirming all members of the South Music Community and serving as positive and intentional ambassadors of South Music in the public.

A Voice Placement is required for entrance, and prior choir experience is necessary.
