The HLR Choir Department consists of three curricular choirs (Treble Choir, Concert Choir, and Honors Concert Choir) that meet during the school day and two extracurricular ensembles (Encore Show Choir and Vocal Jazz Ensemble).
Treble Choir is a female-only choir reserved for all first-year choir female students or students who are still working to develop their individual voices. Concert Choir is a mixed, intermediate-level choir that requires an audition. All female students must audition to be placed into Concert Choir. Currently all new male students are placed into this choir regardless of experience. Honors Concert Choir is the most advanced choir at the school and requires the highest of vocal ability and musicianship. Students in Honors Choir must audition to be in the group and will receive honors credit for the course. Auditions occur in January/February for the following school year.
Membership in choir is open to all students and no experience is necessary to join. All you have to have is a love for music and singing! Students will have the opportunity to sing a variety of styles of music, develop their individual voices, and learn how to read music. All students in choir perform at concerts and contests throughout the year.
