Verdugo's Voices Shine

Congratulations to Verdugo Hills High School Vocal program which has grown in leaps and bounds over the last 4 1/2 years when the vocal renaissance at Verdugo.The Verdugo Voices Glee Club, founded by Dr. Trimis in November, 2011, just 1 month after he came to Verdugo as principal, has since paved the way for 5 vocal groups, a Visual and Performing Arts Magnet, a choir teacher, and recognition by the district and recently the Grammy Foundation when Verdugo was recognized as a Semi-Finalist for the Grammy in the Schools Signature Schools Program. The Glee Club performed for the Chamber of Commerce Holiday Mixer way back , in either 2011 or 2012; what the groups did last night was a wonderful example of how the groups have grown in size and quality. The groups now typically sing in 3-5 part harmony, the advanced a cappella singers regularly record music videos and several of the groups compete in festivals. The groups recently performed for the opening of the LA Zoo Lights, last year went on a tour to San Francisco (and going to San Diego this year), and have performed for the Opening Superintendent's Meeting for Administrators, and the LAUSD School Board. The current groups (who performed for the event) were Verdugo Voices Glee Club & Harmonic Possession, Fiesta Forte Show Choir, Makeshift Harmonies A Cappella Singers, and Java Jive Jazz Choir. The school also has a rock band (a la School of Rock) and full instrumental program including orchestra, concert band, marching band and color guard, beginning band, and beginning orchestra.
