• The Choir Program  

    The McAuliffe choir program is designed to offer students a wide variety of musical exposure and performance opportunities. We perform traditional choral music, jazz, barbershop, multi-cultural, gospel, Broadway, and pop music. Each student is encouraged to find their own unique voice while working on musicianship skills such as music theory, ear training, part-singing, and sight-reading. The McAuliffe choir program provides students with an opportunity to gain confidence and develop their skills in order to be successful music students at the high school level. There are five different groups offered before, during, or after school. For more information about any of the groups, please contact Mrs. Wallace at swallace@losal.org.
