The Vocal Music Program at Holland Christian High School engages students in a deeper understanding and appreciation of music through the development of the God-given instrument inside each of us: the voice. We were created to worship our Creator. Singing plays a central role in expressing praise and honor for what God has done for us through Jesus. In our singing–the mastery of vocal technique, the interpretation of musical nuance, the understanding of music theory and history, the opportunity to make music in community–we strive for excellence; excellence, because our Creator is worthy of our best. Join us as we grow as singers and worshipers of our great God.

“I love how you can walk around and just feel so loved and how you can walk up to every teacher and grow a relationship with them so fast. I also really am in love with our chapels because I think that it is so important to have those and they are just amazing.”
