OTHS show choir has been in existence since the early 1960s. These extracurricular choirs serve as representatives for a large choral program at O’Fallon Township High School. It is the goal of the show choir to provide the highest quality of vocal music education and dance experience for its members, and to provide each student with a dedicated and cooperative learning environment. Great Expectations show choir competes in the Spring, both locally and nationally, and consistently wins awards and recognition in the process.
