Performing Arts

Welcome to the Performing Arts Department!

The CHS Performing Arts Department offers a comprehensive curriculum in Band, Television Production, Theater Arts, and Vocal Music.

". . . the arts have been an inseparable part of the human journey; indeed, we depend on the arts to carry us toward the fullness of our humanity. We value them for themselves, and because we do, we believe knowing and practicing them is fundamental to the healthy development of our children's minds and spirits. That is why, in any civilization - ours included - the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term 'education.' We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts."
