Throughout the comprehensive CSUS Choral Music program, led by Vicky Mann Hauer, students are introduced to a variety of music and musical genres from around the world. This study is enhanced with demonstrations, sectional coaching, guest directors/conductors, and performances. The Choral Music program offers Middle School Chorus, Middle School Musical, Crystal Chorus, Madrigals, and male and female a capella groups for both the middle and upper schools. Choral students gain knowledge of music theory, singing techniques, sight-reading, part-singing, and performance. Students join a community of singers who work together to create something special through collaboration, dedication, performance, humor and a love of music. Singers have the opportunity to perform for numerous school concerts as well as venues throughout the Bay Area.
