Other Performances

Festivals

All ensembles participate in choral festivals and/or competitions throughout the school year. Festivals give singers the opportunity to hear and perform for other high school choirs, as well as to be professionally critiqued.

Festivals are one-day events.  Students will miss part-to-all of one day of school.

Contracted Performances

(Chamber Singers only) The Chamber Singers are hired to perform at a number of outside events for which they may be paid.  These performances occur primarily during the holiday season. Income from these performances generally is used to subsidize special Chamber Singer functions.

Assemblies/Pep Rallies

Various choirs sing the alma mater at pep rallies and participate in school assemblies.

Transportation

Transportation to local festivals and other events may be by chartered bus or in private vehicles.  Before driving to an event, parents must fill out the LCUSD Driving Form and provide a copy of their Driver’s License and their Insurance Liability page. Completed forms must be turned into Claudia Alequin in the LCHS office and approved prior to the date of the event.
