The Dulles High
School Choirs have developed a reputation for mature performances of
sophisticated choral literature.
The success of the choir
program centers on a commitment to consistently raising each individual
member’s awareness level, dedication to a worthwhile task, and the willingness
to work hard to achieve a common goal.
We do not expect every student in the choir to become a virtuosic
musician. We do expect every student to
establish both short and long range goals for improvement of his/her vocal
education, to exhibit mature, responsible behaviors at all times, and to be
willing to contribute lots of hard work for the benefit of everyone.
The choir program
exists to provide an excellent music education for the students. This goal is achieved through individual
study and varied performances in many venues, both competitions and concert,
supporting a curriculum which places an emphasis on comprehensive
musicianship. Performance opportunities
include large ensembles, chamber ensembles, and solos. The skills that choir students acquire in
these activities are directly related to skills necessary for auditions,
presentations, and interviews in other career fields.
