The Donoho School offers choral classes for all students in grades seven through twelve. These classes provide opportunities to participate in several performing ensembles. These choirs and ensembles give two major performances on campus each year, as well as additional performances at other school events, community events, and Alabama Vocal Association Festivals. The Donoho Choir has also been invited to perform at major venues in Orlando, Gatlinburg, and New York City. These students have many opportunities to audition for and participate in several All State and Honor Choral events.
