Heritage Christian School

The High School Concert Choir has an International reputation of exemplary excellence. They have had the privilege and honor of performing in eight different countries, England, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Chile, France, Germany and Prague. From Notre Dame, in Paris to St. Peters Basilica in the Vatican, in Rome, our students have left a lasting impression everywhere they go.  We are blessed to have doors open every year for worldwide opportunities that are life changing and leave a lasting impact on both the students and the audiences.

The Concert Choir is regularly invited to perform in prestigious Choral Invitational Festivals throughout Southern California Universities. Our students have the opportunity to work with renowned choral conductors at all of these festivals and are noted for scholarship offers every year. The Concert Choir performs every style of music and is proficient in singing in numerous languages. This is an advanced ensemble that quite often sings collegiate repertoire. We focus on classical music as the foundational cornerstone of our program and as a result, are able to grasp other genres with authenticity and precision. Excellence in vocal production, musicianship and performance technique, are the core to our day to day rehearsal routine.
