2021-2022 Choir Auditions

2021-2022 Choir Auditions

Auditions for the 2021-2022 school year are coming up! We will once again be holding virtual auditions, conducted through Google Classroom for students already in the district, and through other digital means for those who are coming to DBHS from outside the district. 

The auditions will consist of three parts: a vocal solo, music literacy, and dance audition. 

Diamond Bar High School Choral Music program is comprised of four choirs.

  • Diamond Tones: Entry Level Traditional/Novice Show Choir (No Audition Required, sign up with your GLC!)
  • Chamber Singers: Auditioned Traditional Choir (Vocal Audition Only)
  • Solitaire: Intermediate Women’s Show Choir
  • Marquis: Advanced Mixed Show Choir

We hope to hear your beautiful voice!

Practice Cohorts

Return to practice cohorts will be starting. DBHS Chorale students have the opportunity to have in-person conditioning sessions in accordance with guidelines set by the Los Angeles County Department of Health, the CDC, and the Walnut Valley Unified School District.

As this is an extremely fluid situation, with the possibility of restrictions and guidelines changing, we want our parents to know that our plans for these sessions will always be in accordance with the law and we may cancel any sessions at a moment’s notice. 

Holiday Show a Success

If the best way to give holiday cheer is singing loud and proud for all to hear then our DBHS choir have proven they are professionals at spreading holiday merriment.

Thursday, December 10 was a showcase of our students’ vocal and performing skills. Chorale direct Mr. Langham stated they would feature all of the chorale groups in an array of holiday favorites from traditional to contemporary stylings.

There were solos, small ensembles, and big group performances. Truly there was something for everyone. These performances were special since the core theme was love and joy, which they hoped would spark the holiday spirit not just now, but into the coming 2021 year. In these odd times of the pandemic they wanted to keep spirits high and maintain positive outlooks for the future.

The chorale groups had been rehearsing diligently and had to pre-record some of their numbers. Then their choreographers worked their magic in editing all the individual performances into cohesive performance pieces. During the live stream of the show it felt as if each chorale group performance were little music videos.

Marvelous job DBHS Choir! We’ll be keeping an eye open for the next choir show.

Season’s Meetings

Thursday, December 10 @ 7pm PDT.

The show must go on…(virtually)! A lot has changed this year due to the pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped our students and our dedicated chorale director. COVID-19 has caused the cancellation of a number of shows and concerts this school year. If we’ve learned anything from this, it’s that you can’t keep the music from flowing.

Despite our challenges we continue to persevere and defy the odds. Mr. Langham and his DBHS Choir have managed to produce and create yet another exciting concert.

Please join us (virtually) in support of our students and their determination to keep the music alive. They aim to kick-start our holidays through their love of music and performing.

First Ever Virtual Concert

The confluence of virtual spaces and music has been steadily growing for some time, but it’s really accelerated in 2020 due to the pandemic.  With live, in-person events almost entirely canceled across the country, we’ve been searching for new ways to connect.

On Thursday, October 29, 2020 our first ever virtual concert transpired and was a smashing success!

Adversity breeds creativity… our students worked with our prominent choreographers and prolific chorale director.  We hope they’ll emerge from this time as well developed artists, with a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of all that goes into this most collaborative of art forms.
