    ABOUT US...
     
    The MHS Concert Choir is a come-one-come-all vocal ensemble.  It is open to any MHS student willing to give it a shot!  Make no mistake, we have our cake and eat it too - while NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE or audition is necessary, members get the opportunity to have an enjoyable, relaxed, and overall great time singing a huge variety of pieces, including plenty of pop.  Think about it - it's a once-a-day break from the stress of the world around you!  Yes, it really is worth it.
     
    SOME INCENTIVES...
    There are many perks to taking choir during your time at MHS. 
     
    + Easy and fulfilling way to take care of your arts requirements for graduation.
    + Awesome social atmosphere - students from all grades get a chance to hang out and work together.

    AFTER THE BELL...

    COFFEE HOUSES...
    The yearly coffee houses are run by the vocal program and allow students both in and outside of choir perform whatever music they want in a low-key concert full of variety.
