Choral Department

Welcome to the Fostoria Junior Senior High School Choral Department!  Music Education is very much valued here in Fostoria and has a rich history and tradition!  We encourage you to peruse the calendar and find a date that works for you and come on out to see a music event and support the musical arts here in Fostoria!
The Choral Department is made up of 4 choirs:
The Concert Choir meets 1st period and is a non-auditioned choir.  Selections range from pop to Broadway to Classical.
The Chamber Choir is an auditioned Choir which meets during 7th period as our last class of the day.  This choir focuses on sight reading, learns all styles of music and attends contests through OMEA and attends a contest at Cedar Point.  
The Jazz Choir meets 3rd period and sings light literature mostly popular in nature as well as jazz.
Members of the Jazz Choir must also be a member of the Chamber Choir.
The Junior High Choir is made up of 7th and 8th grade singers.  No audition is necessary although the students have to recommended by their elementary music teacher in order to be accepted as a 7th grader.
All of the choirs must sing in the scheduled choir concert each quarter.  The Jazz Choir and Chamber Choir have higher expectations placed on them.  There are more events to attend.
