The Chorale is a vocal ensemble which studies and performs a variety of standard choral literature. This ensemble performs masterworks of choral literature in collaboration annually with other NCSSM musical ensembles.

Interested students are encouraged to register for all three trimesters of this course. This course is repeatable for credit.

The NCSSM Performing Ensembles are dedicated to the teaching, performance, study and cultivation of ensemble music and literature of the highest quality. These performing ensembles are a serious and distinctive medium of musical expression, of vital service and importance to its members and to NCSSM. Through exemplary practices in organization, training, and presentation, these ensembles provide effective experiences in musical performance and in music culture for its members. The NCSSM Performing Ensembles seek to offer outstanding performances each trimester and to enhance the institutional spirit and character of NCSSM. To music as an art and experience, the NCSSM performing ensembles bring increasing artistry, understanding, and respect by efforts within our own immediate sphere and by providing leadership through cooperation with other musical ensembles pursuing similar musical goals. Members of NCSSM performing ensembles are encouraged to audition for regional, state, and national honors ensembles, including all NCMEA, NAfME and ASTA sponsored events.
