Dear Band, Choir, and Orchestra parents,
 
Our 2nd Annual Casino Banquet and Auction is just 1 month away! We still have a BIG need for donations. If every family donated just one item (think of people you know), we would have an amazing auction that would raise a ton of money for our music department. If your student has not brought home the Donation Letter and Form, please visit our website at HOME (chsmusicalarts.org) to print copies of these necessary documents. You may also purchase tickets to the event on this website.  All parents and adult friends/family of CHS music students are welcome!  it's going to be a blast.
 
Please support your student and your student's music department with procuring a donation and attending the event. Don't forget to invite your extended family, friends, and neighbors! We look forward to seeing you April 7th!
If you have any questions, please contact Annie Burn at 503-309-2975.

A-CHOIR RETURNED FROM NEW YORK CITY LAST MAY!!  It was a super productive tour, with performances at St. John's Cathedral up in West Harlem, one of the largest churches in the world, a clinic with Dr. Michael John Trotta (what a fantastic conductor and human being!  We have a new friend in NYC), performances at Battery Park, Carnegie Hall lobby, Radio City Music Hall green room (with Judy Garland and Vincent Minnelli looking over our shoulders).  Finally, we are the only Choir allowed to actually complete an impromptu performance during lunch rush hour at Grand Central Station.
 
We toured Lincoln Center and  heard the New York Philharmonic rehearse for a concert the very night we saw them and had personal interviews with two Rockettes from Radio City Music Hall.  We capped of our trip with a stunning experience watching Les Miserables before it closes in two months.  This teacher has seen four different productions of this show, including the London production in 1990, and this show is by far the best.  The entire Choir and it's chaperones had wet cheeks (;-)  Thank you to members of our community for supporting this Tour.  It changed many lives.

Welcome to the Vocal Music Page !

Teaching anything about singing (solo or ensemble) and guitar is my responsibility at Clackamas.  Teaching music at CHS is a blessing to me.  As you browse these music pages you'll find useful information about music at CHS.  If you are a student, you'll need this information to perform well in choir or guitar classes.  If you are a parent or guardian, these pages inform you of how this department operates smoothly and what is expected of your child.


We've tried to make these pages fun.  You'll find pictures and audio files of CHS choirs as well as interesting links.  Some links are useful for musicians and others are related to Mr. Davis' interests and hobbies.
