Vocal Music


This is your chance to hone your solo vocal skills or learn how to sing tight harmonies in an a cappella ensemble. Maybe you would like to lead music at weekly Mass, take the stage in a musical, or just have fun singing with your friends.

You will find countless vocal performance opportunities during your time on the hilltop—from ensembles and productions to CMEA Regional and All-State Honors Choirs to cantor at Sunday Mass to off-campus performances.
