Bishop O’Connell High School offers a rich and engaging musical experience for any student interested in singing. The choirs have been invited to perform at prestigious concert halls such as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and at Carnegie Hall in New York. In addition, they have competed in multiple music festivals in many locations including New Orleans, Boston, Montreal, New York City, Orlando, and Philadelphia, to be adjudicated by professional music clinicians. Locally, the choirs attend the State District 12 Assessment each March to be adjudicated alongside choirs in the public schools, and to receive a workshop from college faculty. Vocal students perform in fall, winter, pre-assessment and spring pops concerts, perform solo Broadway numbers in the annual Broadway Desserts Showcase, and provide liturgical music for school and community Masses. Every year we have several students successfully audition and participate in All-District Choir, the Virginia Music Educators’ Association Honors Choir, Virginia All-State Choir, and All-Catholic Honors Choir.
