Personally I have been in concert choir since my Freshman year so that's what has made everything worth it. With choir I have a large group of friends and nobody in choir even feels left out we are like one big family. Every year the choir puts on a show Coffee And Cake and it's the best experience I've had in high school yet because of the simple fact that every student has the opportunity to showcase the talent they have and preform in from of friends and family. Everyone is just really supportive of each other and friendly.
