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.

Bare Rhythm - Cover Girl Music Video

 

On Tuesday, April 21, our very own CHS Bare Rhythm did a music video for Cover Girl and Pitch Perfect 2, which included Bea Miller from X Factor!

The video was shot downtown in a back alley, and then on top of a building on a helipad with the downtown skyline in the background (see the pics!).

The girls were so amazing and very much impressed the cast and crew (and their teachers!) with their talent and their professionalism.

At the end of the shoot, they performed 'Hallelujah' on the rooftop for the whole cast and crew to hear.  It was amazing!

Chamber Music - 2015 PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 21 April 2015 00:00

On Monday, April 21, a number of "Chamber Music" ensembles performed.

These groups were comprised of students from Wind Ensemble, and were grouped with "like" instruments (all saxophones, all flutes, etc.).

As explained by Mr. Barroll, playing in a chamber orchestra is really an exciting way for the students to "take the next step" in their musical education.

Although most of the students in Wind Ensemble are experienced and competent musicians, playing in a chamber ensemble is a very different experience.  The performers play in a much smaller, more intimate venue where each musician's individual contributions are more apparent and impactful.

And, in this case, the members of each ensemble selected their own music, decided when, where and how often to practice and determined who should be their announcer for their performance.

On Thursday, April 16, Unstrumental (along with the CHS Dance Team), traveled to one of the leading hospitals in California, the City of Hope.

The two CHS groups performed for patients and doctors, nurses, employees, etc.  They also received a tour of the hospital facility grounds and one of the research labs.

It was a really great day for all, and the students/performers were wonderful!!

Bare Rhythm on stage_Carnegie Hall

On Sunday, March 29, 2015, our own CHS a cappella groups, Bare Rhythms and Unstrumental, performed at  Carnegie Hall! It was part of a special, **SOLD OUT** concert organized by Deke Sharon, Music Director and Vocal Producer for both of the Pitch Perfect Movies and producer of "The Sing Off."   Our kids had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform as part of Total Vocal, along with sixteen other groups from around the world.

Our all female a cappella group, Bare Rhythm, was selected through an audition process to have a group solo spot. 13 of these girls had the opportunity to perform a song together.  It was honestly one of the most magical musical moments.  They sang Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and brought tears to many in the audience. They were the only group to receive a standing ovation.  It was absolutely incredible!!!!!

Listen to a portion of their audition recording by clicking here: Hallelujah

CHS had 13 students who auditioned and were selected as soloists.  The following students had the unbelievable experience of soloing in a SOLD OUT Carnegie Hall: Troy Adler, Kayla Bakhshi, Cassi Cardoza, Ilana Degann,Asher Gevisser, Sebastin Guerrero, Ali Hepps, Katie Kaiser, Lily Lester, Haley Mark, Rachel Nelson, Sabrina Silberman, Brandon Soriano, Landen Starkman, Michaela Williams, McKenna Zaccaria.
