Macomb Schools Choir Program History and Purpose

The music program at Macomb has enjoyed decades of excellence.  The Macomb choral program dates back to the 1930’s and has produced many outstanding alumni.  The students share in the privilege of bringing music to life.  The joy that they discover is then transmitted to and shared with the audience.

The music program has three primary objectives:

  1. Cultural – To continue the development of music appreciation and understanding through study and performance of the best in music.
  2. Educational – To develop interested and discriminating  listeners and provide a well-rounded musical background.
  3. Service – To lend color and atmosphere to certaincommunity affairs, while promoting and enhancing the dignity and reputation of Macomb High School at all concert appearances.

The directors wants each choir member to grow musically by attaining a thorough knowledge of musical elements and by participating in superior performances of a wide variety of literature.
