Rehearsals start around 3:40 PM (or once enough students arrive at GB after dismissal and travel from their own school) and last until 4:30 PM (5:00 PM for Something More).

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.
