West Jordan High School has a proud history of singing that began in 1983. During the past 15 years that tradition has grown under the direction of Kelly DeHaan. The singing Jaguars have continued to receive only the highest superior ratings at region and state festivals.
This choir has traveled nationally and has won first place gold medals in California, Seattle, and New York, where they performed Mozart’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall. They later returned to New York for an international competition and received the highest adjudicator’s award and a gold first place award at the Riverside church. They have also been seen on stages throughout Utah and have been honored to perform twice with the Utah Symphony at Abravanel Hall under the direction of Scott O’Neil and Jerry Steichen.
Last Christmas the choir was featured in a magnificent performance of Robert Kapilow’s “The Polar Express” with the Utah Symphony. Crowds responded enthusiastically to both the antics and beautiful sounds of the choir. The West Jordan High School Concert Choir is known for its ability to really communicate through music and has enjoyed performing all styles of music from Broadway to classical. It is our distinct honor to perform with the Salt Lake Symphony.
