Choral Music at North Canyon High School

Welcome to the North Canyon High School Choral Music website. Please explore our site. It is the best way to learn more about our choirs and performances and to find up to date information about the NCHS Choral Department. We hope you enjoy our site!

North Canyon High School is located in Phoenix, Arizona, and is one of five high schools in the Paradise Valley Unified School District. Approximately 90 students are involved in our choral program. Choir is also included as part of the International Baccalaureate and Middle Years Programmes at North Canyon. We currently offer four different choirs in our program:
  • Women's/Men's Choir
Women's Vocal Ensemble (Vocal Essence)

  • Advanced Mixed Choir

  • Vocal Jazz/Chamber Choir
The NCHS Choir is an active organization on campus. Our choirs also participate in many outside events throughout the year including local and national festivals, the NAU Jazz and Madrigal Festival, and community and corporate events, including performing for Phoenix Suns games and the AZ Diamondbacks. In 2012, Vocal Essence was selected to perform at the AZ Music Educators Convention. The choirs tour nationally each spring and have consistently received high marks for their performances. Many of our students are selected each year to participate in Arizona Regional and All-State events and are actively involved in church and community music ensembles.

Thank you for your interest in choral music at North Canyon High School. We hope to see you at one of our concerts soon!
