Recently our Chamber Singers, Sorelle Voce, Concert Choir, and Men's Chorus participated in the Region festival and ALL of them received straight superior ratings and will be going to State! The students worked incredibly hard and did a fantastic job! We couldn't be successful if it wasn't for our administration, custodial staff, and our teachers. Thanks for all of your support in making this program what it is! We really do appreciate every bit of your efforts.
For all of you people that like Zupas, make sure to show up TONIGHT to support MMHS Choirs! If you show up at the SF Zupas from 5-9 PM, the proceeds will go to benefit our choir program! Just simply tell the worker at the register that you are there with MMHS Choirs and that'll do the trick. Feel free to tell everyone around you in the line to say the same thing too. ;) Anyway, if you are able and would like to, please go!
