Thank you for your continued support of the HHS Choir program
Covidly-Safe Choir Concert 2020
On Monday, October 19th, our Men's & Women's Choir performed their "Covidly-Safe Choir Concert."
Due to the pandemic & weather, (which moved our concert from outside to in), students had to socially-distance themselves and wear a mask, but just like everything else that has come their way this year, they adapted and overcame!! A special note that even with recording both groups in one night, we spent less than a half an hour inside the same space while singing!
Check back soon for performances by our Chamber Choir (auditioned SATB) & Vocal Impact! (show choir)
We need music now more than ever, and we're happy to safely bring it to you!
A special thanks to Brian Scott Suntken from HCTV for recording video, Mike Schirch from Pineapple.studio for recording audio, as well as our fabulous accompanist, Liz Carey for making this evening a success

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!
