FSHA offers a wide selection of music lessons to suit every musician at any level. All classes receive full high school credit and are taught during the school day. Musicians have a number of opportunities to perform, including at our yearly Christmas and spring concerts, liturgies and masses, and other special school-wide events.
In October 2017, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Mayfield Senior School hosted the Second Annual Southern California Women's Choral Festival in the Lounge at FSHA. Participating schools included Ramona Convent Secondary School, Marlborough School, Mayfield Senior School and FSHA.
John Tebay, director of choral studies at Fullerton College, was on hand as the event's guest adjudicator. In this role, he worked with the choirs individually and as a group, advising and coaching them through their performances.
FSHA's Choir Wins Best Female Choir at Competition
In May 2017, Vocum Veritas traveled to San Diego and participated in a choral competition hosted by World Strides On Stage. In the women’s choral division there were six choirs. Vocum Veritas scored 95 percent, taking first place in their division. Overall, the group placed third out of 19 choirs. What’s notable is that our 22 girls beat out other choirs three times their size with much more experience. Because our ladies scored a 95 percent, they were invited to attend the National Choral Festival in Chicago.
Vocum Veritas performs on stage at the Chicago Symphony Hall
Congratulations to the students in Vocum Veritas, FSHA's choir, for competing in their first ever national competition. They performed on the historic stage of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by nationally renowned directors while competing against more experienced choirs. Our choir, the smallest in the competition, has demonstrated so much growth and development in a few short years under the leadership and guidance of Mr. Mosley.
