Welcome to 2022-2023 Mahtomedi High School Choir Program! Here you will find information related to our program, including concert and event dates and our choir handbook once they become available. 

Our mission statement is devoting ourselves to being a team of musicians. This refers both to how we sing, and to how we interact with each other. It is important that every student and staff member in our program make a strong commitment to uphold our high standards not only at performances, but also at every rehearsal. I ask each MHS choir member to accept the challenge of working hard to achieve stunning artistic results. At public performances, it is expected that they reflect the dedication and knowledge gained in rehearsals to have an emotional impact on our audiences and ourselves. Their role as a community member is an important one in many ways, including your growth in accepting and respecting each other’s uniqueness. I am looking forward to working with each of this years choir members as they grow as musicians and human beings.

Our School
Mahtomedi High School has a heart for innovation, provides rigorous academic coursework, and supports students to explore extracurricular opportunities. Our teachers and staff are passionate and dedicated people who explore innovative ideas and teach our students new ways of thinking to support them in whatever career path they choose. Students engage in project-based learning to solve real-world problems using industry-standard technology in the nation’s first M.I.T. certified FabLab housed in a public school. Fine arts is a vital and robust part of the High School and our visual and performing arts classes include ceramics, digital art, choir, band, and event broadcasting. We also offer Flex Time during the school day when students may receive academic support, engage in college and career exploration, and connect over common interests. Over 90% of our student community engages in extracurricular activities that range from athletics to robotics. Students’ social and emotional learning is addressed through various avenues including a restorative practices approach for student behavior and through our Zephyr Link Crew mentoring program.
