DMA Concert Choir meets once a day for 45 minutes during the 'mini block'. Almost all rehearsing is done during the school day.
The DMA Choir appears regularly throughout the state of Delaware and is much more than a regular 'school choir'. They serve the community by performing at events such as the September 11th ceremony, Veterans Day ceremony at Wilmington Western Railroad, various assisted living homes, community ceremonies, Blue Rocks baseball games, the New Castle County Police Graduation, as well as DMA's own concerts.
Every spring, the DMA Concert Choir and DMA Marching Band go on a trip together.
DMA Choir members are eligible to audition for Delaware All-State Senior Choir, an elite group of singers from across the state of Delaware.
In 2015, the DMA Choir was awarded a Certification of Appreciation from the New Castle County Police Department.
Cadets interested in participating must add Choir to their schedule by the second week in September and pay dues by the end of the same month. Dues help support the cost of programming including the purchase of music, supplies and transportation to and from our many events.
Cadets and their parents / guardians should join the "remind" group @dmachoir to stay informed.
During the 2018-2019 school year, the choir took a trip to see King Kong on Broadway. They worked with the Choreography Director of King Kong in a rehearsal studio on Manhattan and learned a portion of a dance number from the show!

All choir members are require to attend all performances. Dates are published as far in advance as possible, usually before the beginning of the first day of school each year. Since performance participation is a significant portion of a cadet's grade, those unable to attend performances (for any reason) will be given an alternative assignment to complete.
