Come see a very unique CHS Choral Concert on February 26th @ 7:30 PM.
The theme is “Stage, Screen, and even Smaller Screen” with music from the worlds of musical theater, television and video games. All program notes are student written and video recorded and will be projected with imagery from the various shows, tv and even video game footage. This was done with great help by the incomparable Mr. Andy Buckle. We hope to see you there!
