The Sisters High School Jazz Choir performs a variety of vocal jazz styles. Singing experience is necessary as well as a willingness to try dance and movement when appropriate to the literature. Members will develop special performance techniques required by the many different styles of jazz. Emphasis will be on swing, blues, ballad, pop, and vocal jazz. Students are encouraged to perform both written and improvised solos. Participation in festivals, performances, and fundraising activities is required. Auditions for the following year are held in May of the previous year.
The Jazz Choir is more than just a class. It is also considered a club because of the amount of performances, fundraisers, and trips outside of the school day. Every year, the Jazz Choir takes a major educational performing trip. The fundraisers throughout the school year help pay for this trip. Past performing trips include performing on the Fantasyland Stage at Disneyland, performing the National Anthem for the Oregon State Capitol, and performing at the Newport Aquarium.
