The CHS Music Department will end the school year with a themed concert. The theme is “Awaken” and their goal is to make a unique impression on the audience.

The Instrumental Music Gala will take place April 29 from 7 to 9 p.m., and will feature two chamber orchestras, a select group of wind players and three choirs. During the concert, special backgrounds and clothing will be used.

“The concert is going to be a musical representation of how society has changed,” music department head Kristofer Sanz said.

According to Sanz, the CHS music department sets high standards for its students, but he is confident that the concert will exceed even his own expectations.

The Instrumental Music Gala is free, open to all, and is one of the largest collaborative concerts CHS will put on this year.

“We’re completely prepared and confident we’ll do well,” freshman Ian Wang said.
