Madrigal Singers

A select group of juniors and seniors that performs mostly Renaissance music of the 16th and 17th centuries. This talented group focuses on a week of Madrigal Dinners performed in full costume at the Rush County Courthouse each December.

Treble Choir

Features sophomore girls and is a continuation of Freshman Girls’ Choir which focuses more on SSAA music while singing a cappella and in mixed formations.

Men’s Choir

Men’s Choir is an ensemble open to all interested freshman and sophomore boys which performs a repertoire of varying styles and time periods.

Freshman Girls’ Choir

Freshman Girls’ Choir is an ensemble open to all interested freshman girls which performs SSA repertoire of varying styles and time periods.

These five choirs are under the direction of Paul Grizzard.

He completed his Music Education Licensure Track at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, and is now currently working on his Masters in Secondary Education from Ball State University.

Grizzard is excited and honored to be part of the strong choral tradition here in Rush County.
