About Our Program

The RHS Choirs have a long history of excellence and success.  The students and director take great pride in creating an inspiring performance; whether it be classical, jazz or popular music.  Students at RHS have excelled in all three areas of singing.  Classically, the choirs have performed three times at Carnegie Hall in New York City, (we opened a concert performance in 2007) Orchestral Hall in Chicago, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D. C. and Disney Hall and Dorothy Chandler Hall in Los Angeles.  The Vocal Jazz Ensemble was chosen as the top high school vocal jazz ensemble in the nation for the year 2005 (Downbeat Award) and as the 1st runner-up in in the nation in 2010 (Downbeat Award).  This ensemble placed first at the Fullerton Jazz Festival (the largest jazz festival in the western U.S.) in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011.   The very popular Finalé show (all student produced) performs three nights of fun and contemporary music to enthusiastic crowds.

Vocal ensembles from RHS have traveled to New York (three times), Vancouver, Canada, Chicago, San Francisco (twice) and San Diego to attend national festivals.  All groups (Concert Choir, Vocal Ensemble, Vocal Jazz, Chamber Singers) have consistently earned Superior ratings, Adjudicator's Awards, (96 out of 100 pts or higher) Top Choral Program and Sweepstakes for 14+ years.  Local performances include Disneyland, (Disneyland Candlelight Ceremony-several years), T.O. Civic Arts Center with Dick Van Dyck (several years)  area invitational university festivals in Southern California, (USC, LMU, CSUN, CSUF, Westmont, APU, Biola)  high school/college exchanges as well as community events and concerts.  Whether local or national level, the students gain valuable performance experience, receive feedback/evaluation from regarded adjudicators and gain cultural experiences as they interact with other singers and musicians.

Auditions for the 2015-2016 ensembles will continue through May 1.  Email Mrs. Graeve at bonnie.graeve@simivalleyusd.org to set up your audition.   Remember, singing experience is not required. You can learn as you go!
