Every student in the Totino-Grace choir program receives small group lessons throughout the school year, allowing instructors to ensure musical progress while providing a personal connection. This is a key asset to the strength of the program.
The Vocal Music Department hosts four concerts throughout the year which feature a variety of music from classical to pop. There is something for everyone!
Each year, the choirs perform a major choral masterpiece accompanied by professional instrumentalists.
Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and Company of Singers Show Choir have been featured ensembles at state, regional and national levels. Company of Singers have been nationally ranked for over a decade, winning the title in 2010.
For over 25 years Totino-Grace students have participated in MN All-State Choirs, an auditioned and highly select ensemble from vocal students throughout the state.
At the State Solo and Ensemble Contest, Chamber Singers have received a Superior Rating for 25 consecutive years. Individual performers have received numerous Excellent and Superior ratings including many "Best-At-Site" awards.
