A Tradition of Excellence
The West High Choirs have an outstanding choral legacy in the South Bay of Los Angeles and a commitment to providing students with an excellent experience in high school music. We are dedicated to inspiring all students to be the best learners, individuals, and musicians that they can be. It is a high level of commitment and expectation, but we believe it is worth every bit of contribution.
We have produced many talented alumni throughout the years. Our students have gone on to become music teachers, professional musicians, musical composers, Disneyland performers, cruise-ship performers, and touring musical theatre actors.

Hear From Students & Alumni
"Choir is a place where you can be yourself, relax a little bit from all your other rigorous classes, and just be one big family. Everyone is so kind to each other and it's a very positive place."
– Madeline Brown, Class of 2021
"Choir is normally such a special part of my day, where I get to forget about all my other classes and stress and just sing with the people I'm blessed to call my family. Choosing to be in choir was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It has altered my life in the best way possible."
– Emily Hackett, Class of 2020
"Choir is a safe space where everyone is accepted and loved and can work together to create amazing music. No two performances are ever exactly alike. In between performances, we support each other and work to improve constantly. I've met my best friends through the program. I know if I ever need help they've got my back and that I'd do the same for them."
– Noel Drouillet, Class of 2020
"Choir has made me feel more comfortable speaking publicly. I have made new friends that are my family and being in choir makes me feel that I am wanted somewhere."
– Isabel Puente, Class of 2021
