Walsh Jesuit High School



The Walsh Jesuit High School Music Department is proud to present this year’s “Harmony Gold” Show Choir. This is the 16th year of its existence. The Harmony Gold consists of 65 singers, dancers, instrumentalists and crew members. They have consistently won top awards in national music festivals throughout the east and last year was the Class C Champion at the Cuyahoga Classic Show Choir Invitational and took First Place at the Big Apple Classic in New York City. This year’s local competition season includes appearances in Cuyahoga Falls, Carroll, Indiana, Grove City, and Medina, Ohio. We also will be competing at Festival Disney at Disneyworld, Florida in April.

Our show theme this year is “The Breakfast Club.”

The Harmony Gold Show Choir was conceived by and is directed by David Banks, now in his sixteenth year at Walsh Jesuit High School.  Our show has been designed and choreographed by Jennifer Oundjian and Erik Hall from Los Angeles, California, the top show design team in the country!

Harmony Gold is a Varsity level competition team and if you are interested in becoming a member, you must audition in May. Being a member of one of the best show choirs around is an excellent way to earn your WJ letter and make lifelong friends in the process.
