Choraliers is a select curricular ensemble at Central Dauphin East High School. Its members were selected by a placement audition during the spring of last year. Students are chosen based on their musical audition (tone quality, intonation, musicianship, ability to hold parts independently, preparation, tonal memory) and their positive mindset (ability to work with others, reliability, enthusiasm, dependability).
Choraliers perform challenging music of a high level from the traditional choral repertoire, including classics, madrigals, spirituals, and contemporary choral works. A member of Choraliers is expected to give the extra time necessary to help the group become an outstanding musical ensemble. As one of East High’s auditioned choirs, Choraliers will be preparing its own concert repertoire to perform at festivals, competitions, and local performances throughout the year in addition to the major choir activities (A Night on Broadway, Winter Concert, Spring Concert).
