Welcome to the Madras High School Choir Program!
Students enter the MHS choir program by joining Concert Choir, or by an audition into Chamber Choir. Students showing growth in Concert Choir have the chance to move to Chamber Choir during second semester.
Concert Choir (open to all)
Chamber Choir (year-long, audition only)
Students are encouraged to audition for extra-curricular opportunities such as District Honor Choir, Solo and Ensemble Contest, Oregon All-State, NAfME All-Northwest, and Music in May.
The MHS Drama Program is also connected to the Music Department. Choir students are encouraged to audition for the Spring musical, as well as the Fall play, as a great opportunity for personal and musical growth.
AWARDS AND HONORS
For the past four years, Madras High School has been represented by individual student musicians at the Oregon All-State honor choir or NAfME All-Northwest honor choir.
Each Spring, the Chamber Choir performs and competes at local and regional festivals in hopes of receiving a Superior Rating and qualification to the Oregon State Choir Championships.
In May 2020, the Chamber Choir will be traveling with the Symphonic Band to attend the WorldStrides Heritage Festival in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This festival performance will be educationally valuable, as well as competitively judged.
