University School of Jackson

USJ Concert Choir

Students who take part in our choral department are given numerous opportunities to excel in the world of chorus. They have performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City, been selected to The National Association for Music Education All-National Honor Ensembles, taken place in The Quad State Honor Choir festival, and much more. A number of choral students are also regularly selected to the All Northwest Honor Choir each year. The chorus program is highly competitive as the teachers work to expound upon each student’s musical talents, so they are best prepared for performance of all types – from the local stage to the national arena.
