    ShowChoir
     ShowChoir auditions will be starting soon.  Please look here for more information after that time.
     
    The Showchoir sings mostly American Standards (jazz and big band style music) and musicals.  We sing difficult harmonies and do choreography to most if not all of our numbers.  These students should maintain good grades as they sometimes need to miss class in order to perform throughout the community.  If you would like to have the Northampton ShowChoir perform for your event, please contact me at 610-262-7817.  We do need to let students and parents know if advance, so please call at least 5 weeks before your event...Sooner is better than later!
