Early Morning Choir

Early Morning Choir (E.M.C.) provides an opportunity for students from all grade levels to come together to create a unique choral ensemble. The Herget Harmonix formally known as Honors Choir is a special (auditioned) advanced choir.

E.M.C. meets Friday mornings at 7:30 A.M. in room 4005. There is no fee to join; the students should simply possess the desire to sing, have transportation to school, and have the proper performance attire (see below).

EMC – First meet, greet, and sing-through is Friday, August 25 at 7:30 AM.

Please drop-off students in the rear of the building at door #52 using the fire/service lane that goes around the building. Enter the driveway near the 6th-grade side of the building, drive around back to door 52 (the music room), and proceed to exit by the cafeteria and gym near the outside basketball courts. pdf Drop-off Map – HMS Choir Drop Off Map
