I am a little upset. In orchestra today, I saw a poster called “ShenMen” and the poster said that it is a musical group only for boys. There is no female group like this, why is this there? I feel that this is somewhat discriminatory. Please inform me if this is not true.

A.  Shen Men is a singing group providing an opportunity for male voices.  There are several diverse extra-curricular singing opportunities throughout the choral (gr 5-12) experience based on voicing.  It is not discriminatory from a gender standpoint, rather, grouped by voicing.
