OUR PROGRAM

The Argyle High School Choir program was established full time in the 2016-2017 school year by Mr. Will Griswold with only 5 HS students and 10 MS students. Mr. Griswold had a vision from the very beginning, to create a program that embodied one core idea...

"Love Your Neighbor"

An idea passed down from his college director, Dr. Deen Entsminger, Mr. Griswold believed that if everyone in the room focused on caring for one another, that beautiful music would naturally come to life. The Argyle HS Choir program quickly became a family and a growing on at that. In year two, the HS program had grown to 45 students and the MS program enrolled almost 75. By year three, the community of Argyle was catching wind of the special nature of what was taking place in the Choir room. Now in year seven, the Argyle High School program enrolls almost 100 students and will begin the 2022-2023 school year with six unique performing ensembles. This growth was made possible by the passionate students that have filled the Choir room over the past four years, the incredible support offered by the Choir parents and the districts Administration, and the loving spirit shown to our program by the entire community of Argyle.

 

Argyle High School Choir believes in creating excellent musicians and performing music at the highest levels, but knows that this is only possible when the bonds created by our friendship and love for one another comes first. In a world often full of chaos and confusion, we hope that our performances provide you with a sense of hope as you navigate your life.
