Choir

The EC Middle School and High School Choirs play a significant role in school events. Choirs perform for school concerts, assemblies, liturgies, choir festivals, contests and in the community.

When the Choir Program was established in 2011, there were only 12 high school student members and an aspiration to build a new program. They had no classroom and no piano. Today, the High School Choir has nearly 60 students, and together with the Middle School, nearly 100 students enjoy a dedicated choir classroom.

Community

The Choir Program is as much about community as it is about music. Any ensemble can win trophies and sing at concerts, but EC choir students are uniquely dedicated to the program and each other. They stay at school late rehearsing, helping one another, helping the teacher, working on their music and more. They give so much of themselves to the program, and in return, grow enormously.

Competitions

Both the Middle School and High School choirs have participated in yearly competitions at Silverwood and Disneyland and received superior, overall, soloist and first place awards. They have also had the opportunity to collaborate with other collegiate choral programs, such as Gonzaga University and Western Washington University.
