About

Gresham High School’s choir program has produced many state winners at the OSAA State Vocal Solo Championships and many of our students go on to major in music and perform in prestigious university choir programs throughout the United States. Our program is directed by Janine Kirstein and consists of Encore Choir, Gresham Men’s Choir, Treble Choir, Concert Choir, and Overtones. The Concert Choir and Overtones have traveled to Florida, Canada, Hawaii, Texas, California, and New York winning competitions each year in their choral performance category. They have performed at the OMEA All State Convention, the MENC All Northwest Convention and held the honor of Mt. Hood League Champions for eight out of the past nine years. The Gresham High School Concert Choir has placed in the top five at the OSAA State Choir Championships eight out of the past fourteen years. With the continued support of the Gresham High School Spirit Club and the broader Gresham community our choral program will continue achieving such great results.
