Welcome to the Cardinal O'Hara Choir Webpage!
The Cardinal O'Hara Choir brings the message of St. Augustine to life each day-- One who sings, prays twice. All students are welcome to join the choir. Please see the information below about the choir. The choir has many events throughout the year, and you won't want to miss any of them!
Class takes place daily during 3rd period. All sutdents are able to take the course. Class for freshman and sophomores take place at 3rd period and class for juniors and seniors takes place at 2nd period. Each day, students have the opportunity to sing and to study proper vocal technique; in addition, an introduction to music theory is provided. In class, student generated presentations will allow students to express their own creativity and music appreciation. Likewise, students will work collaboratively to prepare for Mass and upcoming events. All choir class students are required to attend all Masses and afterschool events.
Choir practice takes place every Tuesday from 2:35-3:30 in the Green Room. The choir provides music for all Cardinal O'Hara High School liturgies and other special events.
