The Los Altos High School Main Street Singers is the longest running High School choral group in the Mountain View – Los Altos High School District. Since its inception in 1984, Main Street Singers has been committed to excellence, and this dedication can be heard in every performance.


Mark A. Shaull has been the Director of Main Street Singers since its creation. Under his direction they have achieved a truly international reputation. For twenty-eight years the group has concertized during a spring international tour, traveling to fifty-nine countries spanning six continents, and performing works in twenty-four languages in over 360 concerts. They have performed with world-renowned orchestras including the Xiamen Philharmonic, Beijing Youth Philharmonic, San Felice Orchestra of Florence, the Lima Philharmonic, the Brasov Conservatory Orchestra, the Dubrovnik Symphony and the Buenos Aires Conservatory Orchestra. The group has also performed at international festivals, taking first place at the Montreux International Choral Festival in Switzerland.


In 1991, the Main Street Singers were the honored guests of the People’s Republic of China, touring throughout the country. They have also performed for numerous state and regional events and festivals of the American Choral Directors Association and the Music Educators National Conference.


During their most recent tour in 2012, the Main Street Singers performed in Fiji, New Zealand and Australia. In April of 2013 they eagerly anticipate a rewarding cultural and musical exchange with a tour of Croatia, Slovenia and Italy, performing concerts in the cities of Dubrovnik, Zadar, Zagreb, Varaždin, Maribor, Ljubljana, Rovinj, Venice, Padua, Florence, Siena, Assisi and Rome 


The choir is one of Los Altos High School's most visible vehicles for local community outreach - performing beyond the boundaries of campus at both sacred.and secular venues such as in churches and cathedrals, concert halls and schools, corporate private and public event halls and community service locations. In addition, some of the many notable international concert venues have been: Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco; Westminster Cathedral, London; New Zealand Parliament, Auckland;, Conservatory Hall, Beijing, St. Stephan's Cathedral, Vienna and St. Martin ind the Fields, London.


The success of the Main Street Singers tradition stems from the commitment of the hundreds of singers who have been involved throughout the years. Their devotion and discipline has resulted in artistic growth for both the individual and the ensemble. The Main Street Singers experience has been nurtured through love, and has enriched its members with a profound lifelong legacy.


The Los Altos High School students, faculty, staff and members of the surrounding community congratulate Main Street Singers for twenty-eight years of service through the gift of music.
