Fall Concert Information

We are extremely disappointed to have to bring you the news that the CHS Auditorium completion date has once again been pushed back and we will not be able to hold our Fall Choir Concert on stage. The Fall Choir Concert will still happen as originally scheduled, on Thursday, September 29 at 7pm, but it will now be in the Varsity Gym. The mandatory student tech rehearsal will also still happen after school on Wednesday, September 28, as listed on our calendar. This rehearsal will be after school beginning at 4:15pm and will also be in the Varsity Gym. We truly appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this difficult time of construction and transition. The students have been working so hard during this first quarter, and they have prepared some beautiful music for this show. Even though we will be in the gym, , you are still going to be blown away by how much they have accomplished in eight, short weeks. All of the important information regarding the concert can be found in the document linked below. Note that some information is for performers, and other information is for spectators and parents. Please read through this thoroughly so that you can be fully informed of all student-expectations for the performance. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday, the 29th in the Varsity Gym.
