ABOUT

OUR PURPOSE


The Hastings Choirs, offered from grade 6-12, provide the opportunity for students to take part in one of 7 choirs. The choirs perform in a series of home concerts, as well as performances in our region, all the while building relationships, and learning life lessons in a welcoming environment.

Hastings High school offers four curricular choirs and are directed by Mr. Andrew Moore.


Treble Chorale

Grade 9-12, non-auditioned


Bass Chorale

Grade 9-12, non-auditioned


Sonos

Grade 9-12*, Auditioned


Varsity Singers

Grade 10-12, Auditioned


*9th Grade placement in Sonos is based solely on exemplary completion of 8th Grade Choir



All choirs take part in a Fall concert, Holiday concert with the Hastings Band, District Festival hosted by MSVMA (Michigan School Vocal Music Association), and a final Spring concert. Varsity Singers and Select Women's are presented with more performance opportunities through the year, including but not limited to: Christmas caroling at the local nursing homes/assisted living, Broadway night in the Fall, and a Graduation performance.

Choir students regularly audition for Regional Honors Choirs, sing at Vocal Solo & Ensemble (another event hosted by MSVMA in the Fall and Spring) and take part in the Musical in March.

All performances and involvement in Choir allows students to meet new people, explore music from other cultures & countries, and challenge themselves in a setting that their traditional classes don't offer. Education is all about learning to express yourself and participating in any of the choirs allows students to do so in a safe and exciting way.

In 2019, thanks to grants and generous donors, the musicians of the city of Hastings finally got the performance space that was needed and deserved for years. Opened in February 2019, the Hastings Performing Arts Center (also known as HPAC) was a beautiful, new space for our local student musicians and local performing groups to showcase their hard work and talent. Now, the HPAC is a place where Hastings hosts HS Musicals, Band & Choir concerts, professional orchestras, and much much more.
