The Chorus Program puts students through a rigorous course to develop singing and general music capabilities. Students will sing in a variety of languages, styles, and at an assortment of venues during the school year. The SJCCA Chorus is the largest performing ensemble on campus and offers all students the opportunity to participate and grow as a vocalist.
