Participants also perform concerts outside of Maryvale. Members of each group earn participation points toward their letter in chorus, which the students wear proudly on their school blazers.
Annual Chorus Trip
The annual chorus trip is an exciting part of choral life at Maryvale. In alternating years, the choruses travel to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida to participate in Magic Music Days and New York City to participate in Broadway Teachers’ Workshops. The New York trip offers tours backstage at various theatre venues and two Broadway shows. Students can participate in two fundraising campaigns to help defray the cost of these trips.
