The Tecumseh High School Choirs have a history of high-level performances throughout the state. There are currently about 100 students in five choirs at the high school. All choirs are under the direction of Mr. Brett Yzquierdo. Notable performances include performances at District Choral Festival, State Choral Festival, Solo & Ensemble Festival, State Solo & Ensemble Festival, and the prestigious Michigan Youth Arts Festival.
Treble Choir and Chorale are choirs designed for young sopranos and altos at Tecumseh High School whose voices are growing and developing. These classes focus on the basics of performing high school choral literature and developing skills in sight reading. These choirs perform at all of our home concerts as well as District Choral Festival.
Men's Choir is a choir specifically for young high school tenors and basses whose voices are developing and changing. This group sings choral literature in three parts and also works to develop sight reading skills. Students in this ensemble will perform at all home concerts and at District Choral Festival. They also have the opportunity to perform at Solo & Ensemble Festival.
Women's Chamber Ensemble is the newest curricular choral ensemble at Tecumseh High School. This is an auditioned ensemble for sopranos and altos. Students in this ensemble sing music at an advanced level. There is a heavy emphasis on professionalism and stage deportment as well as the honing of sight reading skills. This ensemble is the only ensemble from Tecumseh High School to ever be chosen to sing at the Michigan Youth Arts Festival, distinguishing the group as one of the top choirs in the state of Michigan. You can also hear WCE at all home concerts, District and State Choral Festival, and District and State Solo & Ensemble Festival.
Chamber Singers is Tecumseh High School's only mixed choir, featuring sopranos, altos, tenors, and basses. Students audition for this ensemble in the spring. The expectation for this ensemble is high as they perform music at the intermediate and advanced level and are expected to be strong sight readers. This ensemble has the most performances out of any group at THS. In addition to all home concerts and festivals, this group can also be seen performing at our annual Gala Dinner in November and on tour during the month of December.
