The study of choral music is incorporated into the general music program in all of the elementary schools. All students are offered the opportunity to participate in and experience choral music and performing during the Winter Sing. Each elementary school produces a fifth-grade musical in the spring.

Junior High Level
At NBJH, we are committed to excellence in the choral arts and celebrate the unique sound of adolescent voices. The goal of the choral program is to educate and equip singers for a lifetime of singing success through exposure to quality choral literature and healthy vocal technique training.
Students have the opportunity to join the 6th Grade Chorus, which meets twice a week during lunch and performs in three school concerts each year. The chorus is open to all sixth-grade students and builds a foundation of singing and performance skills.
Seventh- and eighth-grade students have the opportunity to audition for the Northbrook Junior High Concert Choir. Students in the choir explore a variety of different musical styles and learn advanced multi-part harmonies.
