Choir April news and upcoming events!
On April 11th, the Advanced Women’s Chorale participated in a Southern California Vocal Association (SCVA) Festival. Seven women’s choirs and men’s choir participated in this festival each singing three selections. There were two adjudicators who judge and score the performance. The Advanced Women’s Chorale was the seventh choir to perform singing “Dies Irae” by Z Randall Stroope, “Wer die Musik sich erkiest” by Ron Jeffers and “Alleluia” by Paul Basler. A perfect score is 90 and the chorale received a 90 from judge #1 and an 89 from judge #2. We are so proud of the Advanced Women’s Chorale and their brilliant performance.
On April 18, the Vocal Ensemble will be traveling to an SCVA Festival at Palomar College in San Marcos. Results to come!

MCHS Choirs Spring Shoe Drive – Please Donate Your Unwanted Shoes
Announcing the MCHS Choirs Second Annual Shoe Drive Fundraiser!
Nothing to Buy, Nothing to Sell!
We are collecting “gently used” shoes for Angel Bins, a service that will weigh and pay by the pound. All we need to do is collect, tie them together with rubber bands or laces and bring into the choir room. (NOTE: no golf shoes or ski boots) Ask your family, friends and neighbors to clean out those closets and help support the Mira Costa Choirs!
Shoe Drive begins April 11th and continues until May 12th.
FINAL DROP OFF IS MAY 12TH at the MCHS parking lot from 10am – 12 pm.
Angel Bins collects and exports our shoes to developing countries meeting the demand for quality shoes at low cost, therefore deferring waste from landfills and creating employment opportunities in the US and abroad
