MJHS Choral Program Overview

The Magnolia School District Choral Program is a comprehensive vocal music program, designed to develop musical literacy, strengthen sight-reading skills and expose students to developmentally appropriate choral literature.   The district’s choral program holds full membership in the Arkansas Choral Director’s Association.

Magnolia Jr. High School Choral Program is an active, dynamic group of over 100 vocalists, who also serve as student leaders, athletes and scholars across campus. Students are given the opportunity to audition for the Region III All-Region Honor Choirs where Magnolia singers have consistently earned placement.

Students are automatically enrolled in one of three vocal ensembles:

  • MJHS Concert Men (3rd Period) (an open enrollment, male ensemble that focuses on the development of sound, fundamental vocal techniques and preparation of discriminate choral literature)
  • MJHS Concert Women (7th Period) (an open enrollment, female ensemble that focuses on the development of sound, fundamental vocal techniques and preparation of discriminate choral literature)
  • MJHS Advanced Men (2nd Period) (a select, male ensemble that focuses on the development of sophisticated vocal techniques and preparation of complex, discriminate choral literature)
  • MJHS Advanced Women (1st Period) (a select, female ensemble that focuses on the development of sophisticated vocal techniques and preparation of complex, discriminate choral literature)

The concert season consists of two major concerts (fall/spring), and a variety of extra performance opportunities.  In addition, choirs prepare music for ArkCDA Regional Choral Performance Assessment & Sight-reading competition.  With consistency, Magnolia Jr. High choirs have earned Superior-Division I ratings at contest.
