Last May, the CHS Spartan Chorale was invited by the UTA A Cappella Choir to join them as featured performers on their Fall Concert. This invitation came on the heels of a series of top-notch performances by all of our students and was one that we graciously accepted. We will be joined by other choral ensembles from Haltom High School (Birdville ISD) and Coppell High School in a collage concert that features outstanding work by musicians in our area at the secondary and post-secondary levels.
Under the direction of Dr. Karen-Kenaston French, the UTA A Cappella Choir has soared to new heights, most recently featured at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention (San Antonio, TX) and the National ACDA Convention in Salt Lake City, UT as Invited Performing and Demonstration Choirs. A full bio of the director and the UTA A Cappella Choir can be found here: http://music.uta.edu/facultystaff/facultydesc.php?facultyid=441
The concert will be on Tuesday, October 6th at 7:30PM in Irons Recital Hall on the UT Arlington Campus. Students will be taken by bus from CHS at 2:30PM to travel to the concert site, participate in a campus tour and rehearse in the venue. Doors will open approximately 30-45 minutes in advance of performance. In order to ensure that each school has the opportunity to share this experience with their families and supporters from home, we have been given an allotment of tickets to help with seating and audience apportionment for the constituents of the groups in attendance. Our current allotment of tickets is 28.
Sign-Ups for tickets will be handled through the google form link below. Families may request up to two tickets through 4:15PM on Friday October 2nd. At this time, any unclaimed tickets will be made available to any CHS Parent that desires to attend. While a ticket is not required to attend the concert, UTA staff cannot guarantee availability without one.

We are humbled and honored to be a part of this experience and hope that you will be able to join us as we spend the evening wrapped in song.
If you have any questions about this event, please direct them to my attention as soon as possible.
