Seattle Academy’s Vocal Music program offers a broad-based approach to vocal music encouraging students to discover the joys and benefits of music practice and performance. Whether a student is a novice or already passionate about singing, the SAAS “no-cut policy” allows each participant to be challenged and grow through music. Through the school’s commitment to Participation and Excellence kids may discover a talent they didn’t know existed, or have their talent and passion showcased at national competitions such as the Reno Jazz Festival which has named SAAS as the “Top Vocal Ensemble” multiple times.

The SAAS vocal program maintains three Jazz Choirs, a Choir, and a one-trimester after-school Vocal Ensemble.


Our award-winning vocal program is available to all grade levels and includes opportunities to participate in classes, performances, and national competitions including the world-renowned  Reno Jazz Festival where our Advanced Jazz Choir, The Onions, have won overall jazz choir.
