Building a Community of Life-Long Artists

HS Vocal Department


Canal Winchester High School offers three vocal ensembles open to all students. The Department is committed to creating excellence in chorale music using the Academic Content Standards laid down by the Ohio Department of Education. All ensembles study and perform music from ancient chant to modern popular.

All students are expected to become proficient at music reading while they continue to master their vocal technique. Canal Winchester Vocal Ensembles have consistently scored high ratings in Ohio Music Education Association adjudicated events at the District and State level. Each ensemble performs at least one major concert every nine weeks.

Symphonic Choir - A 85-member, non-audition, SATB ensemble for grades 9-12.


Women’s Chorale - A 40-member, non-audition, SSAA ensemble for grades 9-12 females.

Select Vocals Ensemble - An 24-member, audition only, SATB ensemble for grades 9-12.
