Thirty Chamber Singers and 40 Bel Canto girls sang at the College of the Canyons Invitational High School Festival in Santa Clarita on Nov. 23. Nine other high school choirs and two community college choirs also performed in the festival, where they were able to hear other great choirs and receive comments from Dr. Joseph Modica of University of Southern California.

“Both choirs performed beautifully. The Chamber Singers are quite spectacular this year, so I am always confident that they will ‘wow’ the audience. Bel Canto sang marvelously as well. They have improved dramatically from the beginning of the year,” Choral Director Roger Guerrero said.

The festival was the first concert performance of the year for both Bel Canto and Chamber Singers, preparing them for their Winter Concert on Dec. 11. Bel Canto performed “African Procession” (with solos by Halle Levitt ’12 and Chanell Thomas ’13), “I saw Three Ships,” “Sing a New Song to the Lord,” and “S’Vivon.” Chamber Singers performed “Psalm 117,” “Venezuelan Carol,” “Clap your Hands,” and “Good Ale.”
