Chorus

About

The Auburndale High School chorus is presently in its sixteenth year under the direction of Rich Hayes. Mr. Hayes has been directing choirs for 26 years both here at Auburndale as well as nearby Stambaugh Middle School.  The AHS chorus features four different choirs: Advanced Women’s Chorus, Show Choir, Beginning Women’s Chorus, and Men’s Chorus. Over the years, AHS choirs have performed at the Statue of Liberty in New York City, the national monuments in Washington, DC, as well as Stone Mountain in Atlanta, Georgia. We have also been featured many years as an honor choir at Walt Disney’s Candlelight Processional in EPCOT Center, performed for guests from all over the world at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Contemporary Resort, the Polynesian Resort, the Magic Kingdom, and the Animal Kingdom. For over a decade, AHS choirs have consistently received Superior ratings at both Florida Vocal Association district and state level Music Performance Assessments. Individual choral students have been involved yearly in All County choirs, All State choirs, and solo and ensemble MPA events. The Auburndale choral department also performs at many local events both here in Auburndale as well as around Polk County.
