CHS choirs earn sweepstakes

The Canton High School acappella, treble and chorale choirs competed in the Region 3 Concert and Sightreading Competition April 11-12 at North Forney High School.

The choir program was pleased that all three choirs earned a sweepstakes! The UIL Concert/Sightreading is the STARR test for the music world and the students begin preparing in January towards this competition.

The chorale choir is the first non-varsity mixed choir in Canton High School history to make a sweepstakes earning overall superior ratings on stage and the sightreading room. The level of commitment to excellence and student leadership allowed all three of the choir to accomplish such high achievement.

God chose to bless our efforts and hard work and we give Him the glory for the ratings. Our students work hard but it is God that blesses it and we are very humbled that the students were able to all get superior rating across the board.
