VOCAL / CHORUS

The MAS Vocal family consists of a united group of students, parents, alumni, teachers and administrators working toward our goal of building musical skills into performances that inspire our community, country and world. We provide a safe environment for expression using music from a variety of cultures, religions, and time periods. In addition to being musically skilled, MAS Vocal students and alumni will be able to apply the value of hard work, community service, collaboration, and respect to any career they choose.
