ABOUT SINGING… three excellent articles by composer/arranger Kirby Shaw:
There’s room for all types of students in our program. Most begin as members of the Choirs at Salem Middle School and go from there. Many remain with the program 5, 6, or even 7 years.
Membership in the High School Choir is secured by audition and/or satisfactory completion of the Middle School program. We welcome qualified students from other schools, including home-schooled students. Every year, there are at least a few first-time singers in the group.
