**UPDATE** - CT will be performing at the State Qualifier at George Fox on March 2nd. Another choir dropped out of the performance which opens a spot for WSHS. CT will perform at 4:20. Students will leave during their 8th period class and should return to WSHS by 6pm. We will need chaperones that day. Please check signup.com to volunteer.
**UPDATE**.CT will be performing a Pre-ACDA concert (see below) at Willamette University on March 5th at 7pm. Fellow ACDA invitees Sprague, Willamette and Willamette Master Chorus will also be performing. This concert is meant for these choirs to observe each other therefore the auditorium will be limited on space for other guests. Please consider other concert options to enjoy our fabulous Choir of the Titans.
CT will perform for the ACDA (American Choral Directors Association) at 11am on Thursday, March 8th at the First Congregational Church in Portland. This is a huge honor to be select as only a total of 24 choirs are chosen from six states, all ages including middle school, high school, college and semi-professional groups. Please attend if you are able!
