The Madrigals are a select group of approximately 16 singers, chosen by audition. This ensemble offers students the opportunity to perform challenging repertoire, both accompanied and a cappella.

In recent years the Madrigal Singers have earned the highest rating of “superior” at the PMEA choral adjudication. The Madrigal Singers perform at school and outside functions, as well as at the Christmas and Spring Concerts.

Rehearsals are after school on Tuesdays. If desired, students may opt to receive academic credit for participation in Madrigals.
