Welcome to the Traverse City West Middle School Choirs! We are thrilled that you're here. We are a family of people who care deeply about each other, and we are a team that is passionate about singing! We are loyal friends who love learning and growing together as we develop character for life and skills to sing...with our attitudes, actions, and voices. We believe that our success is defined by the self-satisfaction in knowing that we've done the best of which we're capable. We live by a code that gives us perspective and balance as we strive to be the best we can be in every area of life and singing. Our choirs work hard and play hard. We believe that hard work is fun and that a difficult challenge is worth all the effort we can put forth. We celebrate our success throughout the year in the classroom and specifically at our choir code celebration each fall...an all-day event involving special guests and tons of food, fun and fellowship with family and friends! We become well-rounded musicians by learning how to read music through engaging games and activities. We enjoy singing a variety of styles and genres in multiple languages focusing on superior tone quality, intonation, rhythmic precision, diction, dynamics, and overall presentation. We are highly respected in our school, community, state, and beyond as a premier choral program. We are the Traverse City West Middle School Choirs and we love to SING!
I am so glad that you are visiting the choir website where you will find several main pages. Each of these pages contain subpages with many wonderful resources for students and parents
alike! Here are a few highlights that I would like you to make sure to visit as soon as possible.
Please read the handbook together (student & parent / guardian) and then click on the link to the Google Doc at the end, where you can sign it together, acknowledging that you have read and understood everything.
Here you will find a list of upcoming concerts as well as dates for parent meetings (optional) and other activities happening throughout the year. The WMS Vocal Music Google Calendar is always the most reliable source for information regarding dates, times, locations and other details.
Students, please complete this survey ASAP so that I can get to know you better. Thank you!
Please check out the other pages and their subpages too for many great resources and lots of information, pictures, and videos!
Thank you again for choosing to SING! Go Titans!

The 7th & 8th Grade Treble Choirs also attended State Choral Festival in 2018 and received rave reviews from the esteemed adjudicators! The 8th grade performance recordings were submitted to the MSVMA for consideration to perform at Choral Hour at the Michigan Music Conference in 2019 and they were chosen! :-)
