Apollo Bass Chorus is an open ensemble that does not require an audition. For anyone who is a tenor or bass (lower voices) and who wishes to polish their singing skills and be in a fun group, this is the class for you! You need to have NO singing experience and NO music reading experience to join Apollo Chorus. This course is designed to teach great vocal technique in both classical and pop styles as well as teach you how to read music. All choirs at SMHS perform three annual choral concerts (Winter, Spring & Pops) and two Coffee Houses (October & February). Additionally, Apollo (along with Sirens Treble Choir) participates in choral exchanges with other high schools and takes a team-building trip each spring. Apollo performs a varied selection of choral literature from many cultures and traditions. All SMHS choirs travel each year (domestic in even years, international in odd years) during spring break. In recent years, the San Marino Choirs have traveled to: Ireland, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland.
