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 both show choirs 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.
