The Bakersfield High SchoolChoirs comprise a comprehensive choral music education program involving approximately 200 students, under the direction of Christopher Borges since 2000. The five choirs that are part of the program include the non-auditioned Men's and Women's Choirs, the intermediate-level Bel Canto Ladies' Chorus, and the Chorale and Chamber Singers, both mixed ensembles for advanced singers. The choirs' performances at annual California Music Educators Association (CMEA) Festivals have garnered consistent "Superior" ratings, and students from the choirs have participated in Kern County's Grand Night Festival Choir, Central Region Honor Choir, California All-State Choir, and American Choral Directors' Association (ACDA) Honor Choirs. In the spring of 2010, the Chamber Singers were awarded 2nd Place in the ACDA Golden State South Competition in Fullerton, CA.
