About the VMHS Choir Program

     The Vista Murrieta High School Choir Program has been a strong member of the Bronco and Murrieta Valley communities since the school’s opening in 2003. The program boasts five course ensembles ranging from novice to advanced in performance ability and musical rigor. Additionally, the program regularly adds small ensembles to their performances including their men’s a cappella group, Boys in Blue.

     The choirs at VMHS regularly participate in both local and out of state invitational festivals including the University of Redlands Choir Festival, Mira Costa College Jazz Choir Festival, RCC Choir Festival, and participate in festivals with Choirs of America and Heritage Choral Festivals.

     The VMHS Choir Program performs throughout the year in various concerts on campus and in the community including an MVUSD school showcase. They also perform within the community in various holiday caroling and private events. Finally, the choirs at Vista Murrieta High School strive to have a strong presence on campus by performing in pep rallies, special school events, collaborating with the instrumental and drama departments, as well as coordinating surprise performances for school spirit and involvement.
