The Weeki Wachee Chorus performing today is a combination of the five choirs that rehearse at Weeki Wachee High School in Hernando, FL. Voce is the beginning high school chorus, Mermaids is a women’s chorus and Tridents is the men’s chorus. The highest level chorus is the Vocal Ensemble. There is also a show choir named the Vespa Chorus.
This is the second traveling performance trip for the chorus this school year. The groups frequently perform at Festival Disney, Universal, FVA MPA and local venues in Hernando County. The Chorus is excited to be in St. Augustine for their first performance here.
The choral director is Clara Pearson. She began her career in New Jersey where she was awarded Teacher of the Year and the PTA Lifetime Achievement Award. Clara moved to Florida with her husband and children in 2005 and she has taught in Hernando County the entire time.
