Margie Green, Bartlesville High School Choir Director, has announced the twenty-two members of the 2016-2017 Bartlesville High School Jazz Choir. Comprised of select junior and senior BHS choir students, the Jazz Choir members learn and perform a cappella music with complex harmonies. Jazz Choir is an extracurricular program with rehearsals outside of school hours and the group performs at many community events and civic meetings in November and December, in addition to the choir’s regular fall and winter concert schedule. 

“The members of BHS Jazz Choir are selected through an audition process. These students rehearse one day a week after school. They are the leaders in our school and are very involved in multiple activities on campus. Showing off this group in the community highlights our vocal music program and creates a partnership with various community groups and our school.” said Green.

You can see the Jazz Choir, as well as the BHS Women’s, Men’s and Mixed Choirs perform at the annual BHS Fall Choir Concert to be held October 17th at the BHS Fine Arts Center. The concert is free and open to the public and begins at 7pm.
