Choir and Ensembles
The Choir Program at Saint Francis offers four levels of academic classes and a lively extracurricular schedule. The ensembles stage several community performances, participate in school liturgies and compete at local festivals. This is a vibrant program with unique vocal ensembles and opportunities for performance. Our travels have taken us to Southern California, NYC, Australia and Italy.

Liturgy Band is an ensemble whose soul purpose is to prepare for all school liturgies including Collaboration Masses and all student body Masses. Liturgy Band shares liturgies with members of the Chamber Choir and String Ensemble at a variety of school and community events.
String Ensemble is a supplement to the Chamber choir. Students who play with this after school ensemble perform at all choral concerts. The Strings accompany both choirs as needed as well as perform on their own for school and community events.
