Mixed Chorus
Mixed Chorus is composed of both St. Agnes and Strake Jesuit students from grades 9-12. Selected by a required audition in April of the previous school year, chorus members meet daily, Monday through Friday from 7:10 to 7:50 a.m. Chorus members learn basic breathing, vocal focus and basic music theory. All members learn to sight read and are exposed to a variety of vocal styles, from Renaissance to Broadway. Every student is evaluated at least once a year by a required individual jury, during which they perform chorus music in front of the music faculty. All students have the opportunity to perform at least three times a year, to audition for All State chorus, and to participate in the annual Chorus Tour. Uniforms are required. SAA/SJ Mixed Chorus continues to have more students selected into the Texas Pricate School Music Educator's Association State Choir than any other pricate school in Texas. Mixed Chorus members receive one performing arts elective credit.

    REWRITE
    By Joe Iconis
     
    ReWrite, a musical comedy triple feature is comprised of three wild musicals that connect in surprising and dangerous ways. Nelson Rocks! is a show about a young dude who needs to fix his life before the 'You better get to class' bell rings. Populated by adolescents, the show throbs and pulses along a locker-filled hallway, barreling towards its inevitable showdown. Miss Marzipan is a dizzy musical about the life changing preparation that goes into a high stakes dinner party. In this heightened look at the suburban experience, a little bit of blood is spilt, but nothing that some kitchen towels can't clean up. The Process deals with a writer. With a deadline. As the Dunkin Donuts fills with the voices in his head, the writer must conquer his writer's block and finish his musical. The Dunkin Donuts counter lady acts as our guide through this passionate look into one man's writing process.
