  • PNGHS Choral Ensembles

    Student vocalists are placed in a ensemble according to their vocal ability, attitude, participation, classification, and voicing needs. The three choral ensembles provide for a wide range of vocal abilities and time commitment.

    Indian Chorale

    Indian Chorale is a single block, auditioned choir made up of our top vocal students.  This vocal ensemble has many other requirements and some extra opportunities.  Students in Indian Chorale perform college level music at times, sing the National Anthem at home football games, are required to audition for Region Choir, participate in UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest, and perform with Indian Chorale at UIL Concert & Sightreading Evaluation.

    Treble and Tenor/Bass choirs

    As more students join choir we are striving to create choir classes to best fit the needs of our students.  These are newly formed choirs. Treble referrs to students who sing soprano or alto where Tenor/Bass refers to students who sing tenor and bass.  Treble Choir is for soprano and alto students in 10th, 11, or 12th grade.  Tenor/Bass Choir is for all tenor and bass students not in Indian Chorale.  Concert Treble is for 9th grade sopranos and altos.  These ensembles are single block classes and which build on vocal skills previously learned.  During the year, students will have required concerts, performance opportunities, fun game nights, and possible trips.

    Advanced Vocal Techniques

    Not a choral ensemble, but a specialized vocal class for those wanting to better their vocal ability, this class is for students who are also currently enrolled in a choir class.  This class allows teachers to give more individualized instruction to students who want to further their vocal abilities and knowledge of their vocal instrument.  We learn more advanced Music Theory, basic diction for Latin, Italian, German, and French, IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), get extra help on Region music and UIL solos.
