Los Gatos High School offers two choral levels: Concert Choir and Chamber Choir.
The Concert Choir is comprised of students in grades 9-12 and meets during 1st period throughout the year. This choir is open to any student interested in a performance-oriented class, although prior experience in choir or private vocal lessons is a plus. Concert Choir performs in school concerts, assemblies, and adjudicated festivals. This course will expose students to many styles and periods of music appropriate for their ability. Students will acquire knowledge and skills in the use of basic music vocabulary, including terms, signs, and symbols utilized in music reading.
The Chamber Choir is comprised of students in grades 10-12 and meets during 2nd period throughout the year. This is a select artist-level mixed choir, with membership by audition only. Students must have advanced music literacy and vocal technique in order to be in Chamber Choir. The ensemble studies and performs challenging music in all styles and languages. Chamber Choir performs in school concerts, adjudicated festivals, and community events such as Los Gatos service club luncheons.
Students in either ensemble may receive up to 3 years of Performing Arts credit (grades 9-11) and 1 year of Applied Arts credit (grade 12).
