The Arrowhead Choirs
Over 450 students participate in the choral music program at Arrowhead High School. The five choirs at Arrowhead include Treble Choir, Baritone Chorale, Select Ensemble, North Concert Choir, and a music theater troupe called The Broadway Company.
Students in the choral program perform a wide variety of choral music styles, and participate in madrigal ensembles, barbershop quartets and men's and women's octets. Arrowhead High School students appear frequently with the Wisconsin State Honors Choir.
Selected by The Lorenz Corporation to participate in a music theater project, the choir produced several professional recordings for Lorenz. The Arrowhead High School Choir performed for the opening of Miller Park, Tommy Thompson's induction as the cabinet secretary for Health and Human Services, and for a Milwaukee appearance by President George W. Bush.
