The Natick High School Choral Program has a long history of excellence in music education and performance. The 1931 Natick Yearbook boasts a heavily auditioned mixed Glee Club––only 48 of the 100 who auditioned were accepted. By 1941, the choral program included two large Glee Clubs, one for men and another for women. By 1976, choral music had become a staple of the general curriculum and included two ensembles that still exist today: The Concert Choir and all-women's Chamber Singers. In 1979, Natick began to award the National School Choral Award to outstanding choral musicians, and we continue to award this prize yearly. Performing at festival and competition has been a regular activity throughout the choral program's history and is a tradition we continue today. In 2013, the Natick High School Choral Program boasts four ensembles: Concert Choir, Advanced Choir, Men's Choir, and Chamber Singers under the direction of Tyler Turner. The choirs will travel to Carnegie Hall, two adjudicated music festivals, and to Walt Disney World in the 2013-2014 school year as well as host four concert events throughout the year.
