Choir

WHS has 3 concert choirs for students who sing. Participation in Concert Choir and Choralaires is by audition. Choir students perform a concert once each trimester. The final concert of the year is Cabaret--a musical variety show showcasing choir students singing and dancing to songs with a common theme. There are 2 extracurricular choirs whose members are selected by audition.
