The GMHS Choral Department has been seen as a formal fine arts department for many decades.  Students are asked to sing collegiate level music and therefore deserve to feel as though they are performing at the collegiate level.  Our concert attire is required so that all students performing together feel a part of our successful group.  In this section you will learn what is and is not proper concert attire including Savvi formalwear information.

The Choral Music Obligation/Fair Share is the amount per student it takes to meet the Choral Booster Budget for the entire school year. The state does not fully fund our needs as a fine arts department and therefore this budget is necessary in order to provide quality experiences for every choral student at GMHS. This budget goes towards needs such as: bus drivers, activity buses, music copies, folders, equipment, professional development for the director, space rental for concerts, accompanist fees, etc. This year’s Fair Share is $80 per student.
