JHS Choir

   Jackson High Choirs are committed to the pursuit of excellence. Through a varied offering of performing ensembles, Jackson High Choirs offers performing opportunities to students of every ability and interest level; whether the individual student is interested in pursuing music as a career choice or having fun in community choirs and performing groups, Jackson High has an ensemble that is right for you!

   The Viking Choirs enjoy several performances each year, at area nursing homes, businesses, community organizations and schools. In addition to traveling throughout the state for MSVMA Choral Festivals, the Viking Choral Boosters are committed to extending the learning opportunities by offering the out of state trip every other year to the members of Jackson High Choral groups!

In the 2005/2006 school years, Jackson High Varsity and Euphony Choirs were invited to sing in Chicago with the privilege of attending Six Flags Great America the next day. This year, 2006/2007, Jackson High School was the only school in the district invited to sing at Carnegie Hall in New York. This trip will give the choir students the privilege to see Ground Zero, The Statue of Liberty, Shopping at Macys, Saks 5th Avenue, and including many more educational and wonderful things to experience. Join the Jackson High Choir and become a part of what Mr.Bruce is leading on.

   Individually, Jackson High offers a proud tradition of excellence in solo and ensemble competition, MSVMA Regional, State and All-State Honors Choirs, and Michigan Youth Arts Festival soloists. In addition, Jackson High has in the past offered the opportunity for students to explore their creativity with Grammy-Award winning composer Terry Kirkman. Mr. Kirkman has written original compositions for Jackson High Choirs and has vowed to do so in the future.

   Whatever your reason for wanting to sing, Jackson High Choirs have a spot just waiting for you, that only YOU can fill!
