Vocal Music

The Elizabeth Seton High School Choral Music Program provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills as singers and musicians through classes within the daily academic schedule and through performing opportunities on and off campus in a school community that respects and supports the arts.

In a culture in which all kinds of music is instantly available for listening, it’s easy to become simply a music consumer. The opportunity to participate in choir, on the other hand, enables its members to become music makers as they learn to focus their vocal and interpretive skills. The vast array of choral literature provides access to historical eras, cultural expressions, poetry, foreign languages, sacred works, and popular songs.

Course Offerings

The following is a list of Vocal Music course offerings:

Beginner: ESHS Chorus

Open by registration to all students at Seton. Participation is highly recommended to ninth graders interested in choral music, since it serves as the foundation for the auditioned ensembles.

Intermediate: Seton Choral

Open by audition to students in rising grades 10-12 who display pleasant singing voices, understanding of basic music notation, and demonstrated ability in part-singing.

Advanced: Concert Choir

Open by audition to students in rising grades 10-12 with at least one year in the Seton Chorale or Chorus. Members display solo-quality or substantial sectional voices and are able to work with considerable independence at a rapid pace.
We are proud of the strong tradition of women's choral music at our school and constantly strive to maintain high standards of musicianship.
