About Our Program

The RHS Vocal groups have a long history of excellence and success.  The students and director take great pride in creating an inspiring performance; whether it be classical, jazz or popular music.  Singers at RHS have excelled in all three areas of singing.  Classically, the choirs have performed three times at Carnegie Hall in New York City, (RHS opened the concert performance in 2007) Orchestral Hall in Chicago, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D. C. and Disney Hall and Dorothy Chandler Hall in Los Angeles.  The Vocal Jazz Ensemble was chosen as the top high school vocal jazz ensemble in the nation for the year 2005 (Downbeat Award) and as the 1st runner-up in in the nation in 2010 (Downbeat Award).  This ensemble placed first at the Fullerton Jazz Festival (the largest jazz festival in the western U.S.) in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011.    Our very popular Finalé show (all student directed), performs three nights of fun and contemporary music to enthusiastic crowds.

 

RHS Vocal groups have traveled to New York (four times), Vancouver, Canada, Chicago, San Francisco 5x) and San Diego to attend national festivals.  All groups (Concert Choir, Vocal Ensemble, Vocal Jazz, Chamber Singers, VoiceMale) have consistently earned Superior ratings, Adjudicator's Awards, (96 out of 100 pts or higher) Top Choral Program and Sweepstakes for 15+ years.  In 2016, the choirs/band once again earned Sweepstakes at San Francisco.  Local performances include Disneyland, (Disneyland Candlelight Ceremony-several years), T.O. Civic Arts Center with Dick Van Dyck (several years)  area invitational university festivals in Southern California, (USC, LMU, CSUN, CSUF, CSULB, Westmont, APU, Biola)  high school/college exchanges as well as community events and concerts.  Whether local or national level, the students gain valuable performance experience, receive feedback/evaluation from regarded adjudicators and gain cultural experiences as they interact with other singers and musicians.
