Chorus and Band

Saint Joseph Regional offers opportunities to join the school chorus and band for performances at monthly liturgies, concerts, local malls and nursing homes. The SJR Chorus is comprised of immensely talented boys from SJR and high school girls from Bergen and Rockland counties, and new voices are always welcome. 
 
Singers gain valuable vocal training experience, and students who play instruments grow through improvisation techniques. Membership in the chorus or band may mark the high note of a young performer’s career or prove to be the launching pad toward a professional career in the performing arts.

Class of 2011 vocalist Taylor Popielarz summarized the group’s spirit when writing for the yearbook: “More important than the potential prizes and recognition, the Saint Joe’s chorus continues to be a group of high school boys and girls who sing and perform because it thrills them each and every time they take the stage.”
