The Marcus High School Chorale has a long tradition of excellence. Each year, this auditioned ensemble competes at UIL and has consistently received superior ratings from every judge in both concert and sight reading and has been awarded performance honors in San Antonio, Dallas, and Orlando, FL. The Marcus Chorale was one of two national honor choirs named in 2008 for the National Choral Honors project. This class meets during 2nd period in the spring semester and is a combination of Celesti and Resonare. Performance expectations are very high for the chorale as students are presented with challenging literature for performance. In addition, sight reading skills are in continuous improvement through daily practice and the incorporation of accidentals/altered sol feggio symbols.
