Woodmore High School offers a unique continuation of the choral classes many students experience in middle school. WHS offers three choirs: Men's Chorus, Women's Chorus, and Symphonic Chorale.
The Men's and Women's Choruses are open to all 9th through 12th grade students with an interest in choral singing and performance. Each semester, students are challenged to practice good vocal technique while learning to sight read and perform engaging repertoire. The Symphonic Chorale is an auditioned mixed choir seeking an even more challenging choral experience. Male and female singers in this choir perform and sight read more difficult music involving dissonant harmonies, mixed meter rhythms, and foreign languages in an accompanied and unaccompanied musical environment. All three choirs compete annually at OMEA District and State Large Group Adjudicated Events, consistently earning Superior ratings in their respective categories. Students perform in four concerts per school year and have the opportunity to participate in Solo and Ensemble.
