The Orange High School Vocal Music Department is a comprehensive leveled choral program, designed to maximize the potential in each student. Our goal is to help our students not only understand and become proficient in music, but also to understand their role in our community. We show them how they can affect, in a positive way, their city, county, state and country with music and through community service.

We have a state of the art Computer lab, with Practica Musica and Sibelius 5. Our goal is not only to create amazing choral music but also that all students read and write music and can play their part on the piano.
Our choirs tour annually to Northern California (Odd number years), The East Coast and Europe (Alternate Even years).
Our choirs have performed with artists like Shania Twain, Josh Groben, Kenny Loggins. Twenty Eight OHS choir members were in the movie “Sister Act II” with Whoopee Goldberg. (the choir in the yellow robes).
