I enjoy the people and the bonds made in choir. The people here have helped me to acquire my shot.
Daniel Tran, Sophomore
I enrolled in choir because singing is something I really enjoy and I would really like to get better. I really enjoy the friendships that are made in the class because we all have things in common, other than choir. I love choir because I get the chance to do something I love, which makes my high school experience so fun. If you have the slightest interest in singing, I strongly suggest you join.
