The Jesuit High School Choral Program offers multiple levels of choir from beginning to advanced, as well as a variety of performance opportunities for our singers. There are 165 students currently enrolled in one of the four choirs. Our singers participate both curricularly and co-curricularly at seasonal concerts, festivals, school-wide liturgies, class masses, Athletics events, and a number of other on-campus events in support of our Advancement, Development and Alumni Offices. And the best part is, there is no prior experience necessary to join our Choral Program!
Initially, Choir was just another class that I could earn an easy A. During my Freshman year, I stood in the back and just participated. I think the real turning point in my involvement in Jesuit’s Choir was my Sophomore year, when I decided to take on a solo in Concert Choir’s Spring concert. My main concern was my nerves, specifically stage fright. I was never someone who wanted to stand out because I feared failure and thought would feel completely embarrassed.
