The Hudson High School Vocal Program is one that prides itself on the foundation of a proper music education for each individual student. With five choirs available for students to join, the program takes the proper steps in ensuring that each student betters their own personal musicianship each moment that they are involved in the program. The choirs that are offered are as follows:
These groups are comprised of students from grades 9-12. Students represent the entire spectrum of hard workers. Students in the choir program regularly take Advanced Placements courses, are heavily involved in community service, participate in many different aspects of the school, including, but not limited to, marching band, orchestra, varsity and junior varsity sports, various clubs and activities around the school, as well as holding down a part time job.
All are welcome to join the Hudson High School Choir Program, and it is our wish as a program that we continue to grow each and every year, attracting those students who wish to make music with their voice!
