Fan Angel Campaign
The CHHS Choir Program and Booster Club depends upon club memberships and fundraising activities to create a program that offers a high quality curriculum with opportunities in various musical studies, performances, and competitions. Raising program funds, although rarely at the top of anyone's favorite things list, is essential to operating a first class, quality choral program. In lieu of Choir's traditional Butter Braid fundraising program, we are using an online fundraising platform called FanAngel to minimize our efforts and maximize our gains this year. We aim for our fundraising campaign to go live the weekend of November 6th.
The funds your student raises this year will be used to provide funding for a rich music education with an emphasis on building strong character through music participation. These are costs not fully covered by our school or our district.
To be successful, we need your help. Each family is asked to do their small part to make this fundraising program a success. It takes EVERYONE’S participation to make it work. Please ensure that your student as input at least 15 emails into their fan angel.
Singing Holiday Cards
The jazz choirs will continue to offer their annual Holiday Singing Cards this year in December. For each card one of the Jazz Choirs (Ovation and Di Voce) will travel to the desired location in the Grapevine-Colleyville area and perform a short set of holiday songs! For more information about these cards please visit this link: tinyurl.com/singingholidaycards2021
*Students in Panther Chorale will be providing the side dishes for this event, so start brainstorming now!
Region Choir Weekend November 12th and 13th
On November 12th and 13th we will have 15 CHHS Choir Students participating in the TMEA Region 31 Clinic and Concert.
