About the WSMS Choirs

The WSMS Choirs focus on healthy vocal technique, vowel production for choral singing, music literacy, and proper concert etiquette. Students learn to perform a variety of repertoire through unison, part-singing, as well as vocal exploration as the voice changes. Willow Springs has A Cappella Treble Choir, Bel Canto Treble Choir, Varsity Tenor-Bass Choir, and Concert Treble Choir, all of which perform separately and together.
