Welcome to the Mount Pleasant Choral Department Web Pages

Amy Anderson, choral director

The Choral Department at Mount Pleasant has a very rich and strong tradition of excellence over the years. The program is divided into six choral groups which are all open only by audition. To audition for a choral group at Mount Pleasant, please email Mrs. Anderson and make arrangements. The three largest choral groups are credit bearing courses which meet during the school day. Concert Choir, Men's Choir, and Show Choir are open to students in grades 9 - 12, and Women's Choir and Chorale are open to students in grades 10 - 12.  Show Choir meets after school hours, and Men's Choir uses some of the rehearsal time during the day.  A student MUST be in Chorale, Women's Choir, or Concert Choir to be eligible for Men’s Choir or Elite 8.  Show Choir is open to all students attending MPHS, but interested students must audition.

Student Officers:  Anna Langrehr - President,  Harrison Dennett - Vice President, Talia Speak - Secretary, Hannah Moore - Treasurer, Veronica Barat - Librarian

Student Directors: Karis Meacham - Senior Director, Veronica Barat - Junior Director, Cara Jones - Concert Choir Director, Gia Ingrao - Women's Choir Director, Anna Langrehr & Talia Speak - Show Choir Directors, Deirdre Buckmaster - Elite 8 Director
