The Lady Choraliers are the top female vocalists of Martinsburg High School. This college preparatory ensemble is designed to teach advanced vocal technique and music reading skills while introducing students to standard choral literature. The women of Lady Choraliers are strong, intelligent, compassionate, expressive individuals with class and poise who consistently conduct themselves in a professional manner at Martinsburg High School and at performances throughout the community.
Auditions will take place in May of the previous year. It is strongly advised that if you are interested in auditioning for this group, you have first completed a year of choral study in Concert Choir or Perfect Harmony. This ensemble will perform competitively graded repertoire such as madrigals, unaccompanied octavos, vocal jazz, world music, and more. Students enrolled in Lady Choraliers will be required to compete and attend rehearsals, competitions, and performances “outside of class time.” This ensemble will be traveling locally, regionally, and nationally depending upon the circumstances each year. This group has additional financial and time commitments that are outlined in the exclusive Lady Choraliers handbook. Students are provided with many opportunities to fundraise to pay for their financial obligations. Students should not audition for this ensemble if they and their parent/guardian are not privy to and able to adhere to all associated obligations.
