New Vision : Great Things
The Baltimore City College High School Choral Program consists of over one hundred students ranging from grades 9 through 12. The choir takes pride in performing music from the works of Praetorius and Handel to the spirituals and works of Dawson, Hogan and Ellington. In an effort to reach all members, according to their abilities, The Full Choir/ Mixed Chorus has been divided into several groups or ensembles. They are: The Concert Choir, a auditioned group of about 50 students who serve as the main performing group; The 'Singing/Swingin' Knights' Ensemble, consisting of 25 students with advanced levels of music training, who perform literature written for small ensembles, from the Renaissance period to the present; and finally, The 'Knights and Daze' Show Choir, who perform jazz, pop, and show literature with choreography. The Baltimore City College Choirs have delighted audiences on television, radio, and stages in the Baltimore Metropolitan area, throughout the United States, as well as internationally. The choirs have also participated in numerous competitions and adjudications in which they have consistently received superior ratings with numerous awards and trophies. The choir has also recorded three CD's: Vision for the Millennium and Living the Vision: The Europe Tour, A New Vision.
