Concert Choir

Grades 9-12
(Ages 14-18 – High School)

See Registration page for schedule and location.

Concert Choir Handbook

A handbook will be sent via email at the beginning of the semester outlining the responsibilities and opportunities available to CAPA Choir members in High School.


Because choir is viewed as a commitment, we take very seriously the issue of regular attendance. Should an absence occur, a written excuse must be submitted from a parent as to the reason for the absence. Please provide advanced notice of expected absence via email to the director when possible. Reasons for excused absence shall include any legitimate reason, which is sanctioned by parental discretion. No more than 2 unexcused absences will be permitted per semester. If a student acquires this status, they will forfeit the privilege of choir attendance for the remainder of the semester, and honor the remaining tuition payments until semester’s end. Attendance will be taken by virtue of practice cards, which must be turned in at the beginning of rehearsal. The choir secretary will be responsible for taking attendance.


Although discipline is not necessarily a problem, should there be an instance where action is necessary parents will be notified by phone. This will be followed by a written referral should the matter not be corrected. Any further problems will result in expulsion.

Practice Cards

Practice Cards help the teacher and student keep on target. Rehearsal is required at home to learn the music, and the teacher will assign specific tasks to accomplish. Students are expected to practice an average of 4 days per week for a limited amount of time. (Teen Choirs ½ hour). Some demo recordings can be found on the Homework page. Parents are to sign off weekly and cards are turned in to the homeroom mom/choir secretary. Awards/grades are given at the end of every year by work and effort recorded on a point sheet, which is distributed at the beginning of the year.
