Choir Placement for the 2013-2014 school year will be posted online only between 5:00 and 6:00pm on Saturday, April 4. Go to and click on the Audition Resource link at the top of the page. There you will find a link to the 2013-2014 Choir Rosters. We will only post rosters for the auditioned choirs. If your name is not on the list it means you will be singing in one of the non-auditioned choirs (Cantare Women’s Choir or Cantus Men’s Choir).

An End of Year Itinerary is now available for members of Cantare, Chanteurs & Bel Canto. This itinerary covers all important dates, concerts/performances, assignments, when to meet in the library, what days to bring study materials etc.

Wednesday, May 22 is our final concert of the year. We could use some help with handing out programs, recording the concert, and assistance with the organization of the reception that will follow the concert. If you are willing to assist please complete the Volunteer Form. We thank you in advance for your time!

A thank you goes out to all the families who participated in the No Hassle Fundraiser from the Bay Port Music Parent Association and from the music faculty. We thank you for your generosity! Due to the late timing of the fundraiser this year, the Music Parent Association is asking me to ‘resend’ the fundraiser information. If you have already participated in the fundraiser please disregard this message. If you have not yet participated in the fundraiser please review the information and consider participating. All proceeds go back directly to our music students.
