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.
JCHS is grateful for generous operational, programmatic, and financial support from:
The Jewish Community High School of the Bay (JCHS) is a unique college preparatory high school committed to integrating deep learning, universal wisdom, and Jewish values. We empower each student to embrace her or his Jewish identity, generate empathy and compassion, delight in lifelong education, and improve the world.
