Choirs

La Canada High School offers six choirs to students in 7th-12th grade. Each choir focuses on proper vocal technique, choral performance practices, musicianship appropriate for its level, as well as choral literature from all eras and styles and in multiple languages. All choirs perform in a minimum of four concerts per year in addition to festivals and/or competitions.

All six La Canada choirs are outstanding. Each choir regularly receives Superior and/or gold ratings yearly. Concert Choir and Chamber Singers have won first place at national competitions, and on their international travels, have performed in some of Europe’s most iconic venues, such as the La Sagrada Familia Basilica in Barcelona, St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican, and Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The Chamber Singers have performed at National and Western States American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) conferences and were featured on the NPR program “From the Top”.
