Elementary Choral Festival - February 2020

  • The CUSD elementary choral festival took place at the Chandler Center for the Arts in February with the theme of "Songs of Africa." Twenty-four elementary schools participated over the course of two days. All students worked with Wendy Umbrianna from Santan Junior High on choral singing techniques. Melissa Trafficante and Liana Clareson taught choreography over the course of the two days to close to 1,400 students. The amazing choirs from Chandler High School performed both days at the festival under the direction of Lori Lyford and delighted the elementary students with their musical abilities. Megan Vogus and Katie Landon hosted the festival and were awestruck by the talented groups that performed each day.
