No experience needed . There is a place for everyone! Yes, you can learn how to sing or dance.

Show Choir Student Perspective


I am flexible and have worked with students who have about every possible schedule and conflict imaginable. We have worked with 3 sport athletes before and students in about every activity after school. We have made it work for them, and I would do the same for you. There is a group that works with your current work or extracurricular schedule. ******Yes, you can do sports, band, guard, etc and be in a choir!*****

This year we are also accepting some students into some choirs who do not have space for choir as class but can only participate as an extracurricular club.


  • Flexible with schedules, academics, SPORTS, etc.  

  • Family Atmosphere – FRIENDS!!!!

  • Over 150 students!

  • Competitions!!!

  • Represents students who have jobs, participate in sports, Band, clubs such as FFA, BPA and STUCO and more. Yes, you can do these and be in choir!

  • Tour and Trips

  • Goal oriented, high energy, EXCELLENCE

  • Little or No Homework

  • Get a Fine Arts Credit.  Why not get it while doing something fun!

  • Parties

The benefits of being in choir include much more than singing and musical knowledge.  You will have opportunities to experience excellence, fun, and the opportunity, to learn leadership skills, to make new friends (both at PHS and everywhere we go), to learn valuable life skills, to shine in a way you never thought possible, and to be a part of a family. You don’t have to miss out on a memorable life experience.

Don’t close the door until you speak or with others who are currently in the group.  Be part of something special.  Be part of something great! Be part of something FUN!  Be part of the choir! 

I hope to hear from you. If you have any questions at all regarding how to join please contact Mr. Hummel at or just stop by the choir room!
