Choir of the Titans News
  • CT has been invited to sing at George Fox for their Winter Choirs Concert on February 24th.  Concert will begin at 7:30pm.  Departure details to come but CT will leave in the early afternoon for a rehearsal on their stage, have dinner in Newberg, and then head back to GFU to perform.
  • CT will be visiting University of Oregon for an all day field trip (to include a clinic and      watching a rehearsal) on Tuesday, February 27th, with Director Dr. Sharon Paul.  More details to come.  
  • **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 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!
