Dual Credit Options for Next Year!

Dear CHS Choir Parents,

As you and your singer are considering scheduling options for next year, take a moment to review the CHS Dual Credit Options that may allow for your learner to have more choice in their schedules.  The counselors have done a fantastic job of preparing a brief Voice Over Presentation that is available through this link:
Feel free to reach out to your singer’s counselor or to us if we can be of any assistance as you look forward to next year.
Have a great day!

9th-11th Grade Choir Registration Information for Next Year

Dear CHS Choir 9th-11th Graders and Parents,


Thank you for being a part of the CHS Choir Program this year!  We strongly encourage you to join us again next year.  As you know, significant growth as a singer takes investment over time.  Over the next few weeks all CHS and NT@C Learners will be registering for classes for next year.  We hope to give you some reminders that should help through this process:


  1. All students at CHS & NT@C may register for ANY choir class for next year that their counselors will allow.  If there is a need for a correction after they have registered to move them to another choir class, the CHS Choir Directors will contact both the parents AND the counselors.  If your singer knows another student who would like to join, just tell them to sign up!  Then we will reach out to them at some point before the start of school next year.

  2. Here are recommended guidelines of what to sign up for:

    1. Current A Cappella Choir Members – register for A Cappella

    2. Current 10th Grade Girls – register for either A Cappella or Chorale

    3. Current 9th Grade Girls – register for Kantorei

    4. Current Men’s Choir Men – register for A Cappella or Chorale

  3. If you believe you have scheduling conflicts, we recommend reaching out to a choir director before choosing not to sign up for choir again.  Hopefully we can help you work through conflicts on the front end.

  4. A Cappella will be the only choir that is double blocked.  Keep in mind that all learners will gain an extra spot in their schedule so it should not feel like you are giving up two of seven periods.  Double blocking is not unusual for schools that are on this type of schedule.

  5. Vivace, Respira, Madrigals will require NO additional courses (zero hours, etc.).  Madrigals will rehearse during the A Cappella period and have some outside rehearsals.  Respira and Vivace will have their normal Monday/Thursday Rehearsals.

  6. All singers in choir are required to complete the Choir Midterm Project through this link by 2/13/17.  CLICK HERE TO VIEW  This is what we will use to audition singers for next year as well as for the music portion of Vivace for THIS year.

All singers are valuable to us and we hope to keep them all! We appreciate you taking the time to read this and stand ready to assist if you have any trouble being a part of our great program next year!

Respira Dessert Show & Silent Auction FAQ



How much are desserts? Dessert is included in the price of your ticket!


When will dessert be served? Desserts will be served during intermission during both the Friday night show and the Saturday matinee.


I have a peanut allergy…should I be worried? Not at all…All of our desserts have been inspected by the Boosters and are peanut-free.


Silent Auction

When will the auction begin? The silent auction bidding will begin Friday evening before the show begins at 6:30pm. It will resume Saturday before the show at 1:30pm.


When can I bid on items? You will be able to bid on items 30 before each show and during the intermission on both Friday night and Saturday afternoon.


How can I ensure I bid high enough on Friday night to win on Saturday? Bidders on Friday night can submit a MAX bid that is sealed until the auction is finished on Saturday’s show.  The MAX bid is then revealed. If the MAX is more than the Saturday bids, then the holder of the MAX bid wins the auction item.


What kind of items are available for bid? We will have LOTS of gift cards to Coppell area restaurants and business, as well as jewelry, auto gear, photography packages, sweet goodies, and much more!


When will I pay for/pick up the items I won the bid for? Please pay for your items after the Saturday matinee show ends or at Sunday pickup between 2-3:30pm in the choir room.


What if I come Friday night, but am not available to pick up after the auction ends on Saturday? You can come to the school to pick up your item(s) on Sunday afternoon from 2-3:30pm in the choir room.


When will the auction end? The auction bidding ends at the end of intermission during the Saturday matinee.


How will I be notified if I have the winning bid? You will get an email or text from Mr. Brown during the 2nd act of the Saturday matinee. We will also post the winners on our website:


How can I pay for my items? You can pay for your items with cash or checks written to “CHS Choir Boosters”.


What happens to my personal information on the bid sheet after the auction is over? Once the winning bidder has been notified and the item has been paid for and picked up, the bid sheets will be shredded. No information will be transferred or used by the Booster organization.
