April 18th, Vocal Ensemble performed at the SCVA (Southern California Vocal Association) Choir Festival at Palomar Community College. Singing for two judges, they received a high Superior rating and glowing comments from not only the judges but from other directors and students from other schools.
April 26th, the Women’s Choir went to an SCVA Choir Festival at Placentia-Yorba Linda USD PAC. They sang three songs and received a nearly perfect score from both judges, earning them a high Superior rating.
May 4th, both the Women’s Choir and the Men’s Choir went to the Music in the Parks Festival at Disneyland, competing with other choirs from across SoCal. The Men’s Choir was the only choir competing in the Men’s division, and they earned a Superior Rating. The Women’s Choir was in competition with other high school women’s choirs, and they won the women’s choir division. They also won best high school choir over all. Then the final award of the evening -- the Esprit de Corps award -- was announced. This award goes to the school exhibiting the best behavior, support to their fellow competitors, ease and professionalism on site at the competition, and over all the most impressive school. Mira Costa High School took that award. We could not be more proud of our students not only for their winning performances, but most of all for their professionalism and exceptional behavior.
