The Freshman Choir gives new students the opportunity to learn the art of singing with others, good singing technique, basic choral-related music theory and experience the beauty of making music.
The Freshman Choir performs a variety of music and the music of Christmas. The focus is on the art & technique of choral singing using different musical styles ranging from popular to classical to jazz and beyond.
Our Jazz Ensemble is a group of talented musicians selected through an annual audition process. Under the direction of Mr. Nick Ratay, this credited class learns about jazz performance concepts and plays an entertaining range of classic jazz and big band to current hits and modern classics.
The group performs at several concerts and travels off-site to elementary schools and other venues throughout the region.
The Harmony Gold Show Choir features the best singers and dancers at Walsh Jesuit. This varsity level, auditioned group performs themed shows at competitions throughout the Midwest and takes performance trips to exciting places like Disneyworld, New York City and Chicago.
The Chamber Choir provides vocal music for all Masses and other spiritual services and events throughout the school year. In addition to performing liturgical music, this is a competitive choral group, performing at OMEA Solo & Ensemble contests and National Festival competitions.
A subset of the Chamber Choir, this audition-only small group specializes in acapella singing, with a repertoire of traditional madrigals, sacred music of the Renaissance, Christmas carols, as well as pop and jazz tunes.
They perform in the same venues as the Chamber Choir, including OMEA Solo & Ensemble and National Festival settings. They often are asked to perform for special events where a small strolling group is needed and specific material is requested.
These groups provide the musical performances and support for various athletic events and school activities, and represent the school in community events throughout the year. Any current band member is eligible, or you may audition in May.
