Panther Choir Newsletter 10/22
Dear Choir Families,
Thank you for supporting and attending our first choir concert of the year! We are so proud of the choirs, their talent, and their hard work! We look forward to working out some of the logistical glitches for next time. Thank you to our Choir Boosters for feeding the students, and for making front-of-the-house work smoothly. A big shout-out goes to our fantastic Student Choir Council for staying late, cleaning up, and for their amazing leadership. Making music together is one of the most wonderful and powerful things we do as humans. We are excited to be a part of GCISD, CHHS and the CHHS Music Department! We can’t wait for our December 9th Concert! Our doors are always open if you have questions or concerns. Have a wonderful weekend!

This coming Thursday, October 28th, student soloists and jazz choirs from the CHHS choir program will perform at the Palace Theater in downtown Grapevine. The students have all worked so hard in preparing their solos for this evening and we hope that you will join us! There will be an opportunity to vote for your favorite performance at the end of the night.
We are so thankful to our Panther Choir Booster Club for all of the support that they provide for our choir students. We cannot do what we do without them! If you are interested in membership please visit the boosters page on the choir website (CLICK HERE).
