Under the direction of Melissa Seiler, the Bishop Carroll Catholic High School Choirs perform at a variety of venues and participate in many activities during the school year, including All School Masses, fall and Christmas concerts, The Kansas State High School Regional and State Solo and Ensemble Festival and our annual "pops" concert Golden Review.
There are four choirs that can be taken for fine arts credit at BCCHS: Carrolleers Choir, Concert Choir, Chanterelles and Madrigals.
Choir is an exciting & fun way to be a part of the Fine Arts Department at Bishop Carroll High School.
Please explore our site or contact Mrs. Seiler to learn more about our choirs and director, view our upcoming performances, and see an album of past performances and members.
Carrolleers is the freshman women’s ensemble at BCCHS, open to any freshman woman who wants to sing. This ensemble performs women’s mixed music in a variety of styles and compositional periods.
Concert Choir is our intermediate level mixed ensemble. This ensemble is open to any freshman male, as well as any sophomore, junior, or senior who is interested in singing with a mixed ensemble. This choir takes the basics of reading music and sight singing, and enhances it with music and performance.
Chanterelles is our advanced upper class women’s ensemble. This choir is selected by audition only. Auditions are held in the Spring for the following year - all candidates must be able to read music well, have outstanding attitudes, attendance and work ethics as well as completion of the basic theory. This ensemble not only performs many pieces throughout the year, but also has the opportunity to go on choir tour in the fall.
Madrigals is our advanced upper class mixed ensemble. This choir is selected by audition only. Auditions are held in the Spring for the following year - all candidates must be able to read music well, have outstanding attitudes, attendance and work ethics as well as completion of the basic theory. This group learns music fast, and works quickly, as they sing many times in the community, as well as on tour in the fall.
