The Clovis East High School Choir Program has enjoyed more than a decade of Choral Excellence, both in our school district/local area, as well on the National Choral Stage.  We have a graded program that trains each musician, from beginner to advanced in a setting with students with similar music ability in separate choirs.  Concert Choir is the starting step for most of our singers, those who have great voices and musical ears, but lack the ability to read music.  They are partnered with our most advanced singers, the Chamber Choir (T-Wolf Chorus) for all performances.  We then have our intermediate level girls’ choir, our Women’s Ensemble, (select 7th graders, and more advanced 10-12 graders).  Our top two groups are the Women’s Chorale (8th period after school choir) and our Chamber Choir, (T-Wolf Chorus).  Both of these groups have received consistent, unanimous superior/command performance ratings every festival and or competition since the beginning of Clovis East High School.  We also offer Small Jazz/Glee type “A Cappella” Vocal Ensembles.  These include: Mixed Jazz Ensemble, Women’s group – Twilight, Senior Mixed Quartet, Mixed Octet, Senior and Men’s Select groups.
