The Jazz Choir recently embarked on a 6-day  trip to the Lincoln Center in New York City where they attended an all-state choir festival and sang with 8 different choirs 2 of which were college choirs.  When they weren’t competing they were able to  experience a Broadway musical “Phantom Of The Opera”, visited Times Square, the Rockefeller Center, and  experienced fresh falling snow.

“ Overall, the experience was exhilarating and the perfect ending to my senior year”, Evan Miller said.

In fact, our Jazz Choir is known nation why for being one of the best choirs, winning titles like “ Most Outstanding Jazz Choir of the Day”, at the Fullerton Jazz Festival.

“ Jazz choir is the best thing that ever happened to me,” Tori Romero said. “ I couldn’t imagine my high school life without it”.
