The purpose of Sandwich Soul is to encourage student's artistic expression through music and theatrical work helping students to become more confident musicians and people. We strive to have all our vocalists collaborating together to put on a beautiful show and meaningful experience here at SHS and throughout our community. Our members, 9th through 12th graders, will develop people skills and learn about leadership that will stay with them throughout high school and the rest of their lives. We want our students to feel they are in a safe environment to be themselves, have fun and create!
Our club takes attendance at every meeting. We meet in either D155 or in the theatre from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, every Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and some Wednesdays. The advisors and officers are flexible and understand that everyone has different schedules, but we believe that our members should make a commitment to Sandwich Soul in order to create beautiful music. Members are only allowed to miss five rehearsals during a season (Winter season = September through December and
Spring season = January through June), or we may have to replace them. Every circumstance is a case by case basis, and there are special circumstances which are excused.
Sandwich Soul is ensemble based and not just about solo work. There are many opportunities to perform solos, and we encourage all members to be positive and support to everyone in the group whether they obtain a solo or not.
*Students who make it into Sandwich Soul are eligible to take the Advanced Show Choir Honors course during the school day for honors credit. Only members of Sandwich Soul are allowed to enroll in this class.

Sandwich Soul communicates with members/leaders through detailed rehearsal schedules, texting, e-mail, Facebook, and announcements at school.
All club members have to pay an $80.00 activities club fee to Sandwich High School which help funds our advisors stipends, this is a one-time annual fee.
Sandwich Soul is a touring choral group, and each year we alternate participation in a local Massachusetts festival or touring out of state to a National festival. The tour price varies each year, but local tour years are approximately $100, and out of state tours range from $400 to upwards of $1500. All information for tour years is given at the beginning of the year, and it is not required to go on tour to be in Soul, but recommended. J All Soul members are also given lots of opportunities to fundraise for tour.
Our club also sells tickets for a minimal donation of $5.00 for semester concerts. We also sell concessions at our Winter and Spring concerts. We also do a fundraiser concert in March which highlights Soul and goes directly towards their tour price. We also sometimes have a raffle drawing or sell tshirts or scarves. And we also have car washes as well. We would like to continue to expand our fundraisers.
