It was an evening of some truly remarkable performances.  For many of these students, this was their last opportunity to perform for CHS.

In addition to the beautiful music, there were some light-hearted moments of fun too!  (who knew that trombonists could kick like that??)

Senior Solo Night, on Wednesday, May 13, was an incredible night of performances by some of the top Senior music students at CHS- vocal or instrumental.

Now in their final year of high school, most of these students will be moving on to college and other post-high school opportunities, but still were able to deliver amazing performances as a legacy to the rest of the remaining CHS music students.

See the following medley of some of the top performances.  The talent in this graduating class is off the charts.  We will surely miss each and every one of them!

On Wednesday, April 22, the various Jazz ensembles performed in the 2015 JAZZ FINALE!

In addition to incredible musical performances, all of the SENIORS from each ensemble was recognized for their contributions over the years.  Many of these seniors have participated all 4 years in our Music Program -  often in two, three, four, or even more different ensembles.  They are a truly remarkable group of kids.  We wish them the very best of luck in the future.
