Music at JCHS

The JCHS music program is designed to increase the skill and performance level of each student and to develop aesthetic and cultural values through critical listening.
As members of the vocal and instrumental ensembles, students have the opportunity to perform in varied settings including solo work, concerts, and drama production accompaniment.
Through our music programs, student performers have opportunities to: 
  • Advance their skills while developing their knowledge of a variety of cultures, periods, and styles 
  • Compose music, arrange music, and learn the art of improvisation and accompaniment 
  • Perform pieces, both in the school and the wider community, including solo work, orchestral concerts, and drama production accompaniment 
Our vocal ensemble, a high-level a capella group accepting members by audition only, provides students with extensive performance opportunities at locations throughout the Bay Area. In addition, our student instrumentalists play for the fall musical every year.
