Music is a powerful tool created by God. Man has always had the choice to use music to glorify God or himself. The music program at CCS gives students an opportunity to practice praising God with their voices and instruments.
Each year, music students perform in chapel, at athletic events, for special ceremonies and events at school and in the community. In the spring, both high school choirs, soloists, CCS ensemble groups and instrumentalists participate in TAPPS Competitions (District, Regional and State). In addition, the Music Department hosts a Spring Concert, featuring all of the music from the TAPPS Competition.
Secondary Music Director / Teacher
Returning Fine Arts faculty member Mr. David Horn celebrates his third year at CCS. He holds a B.M. in Vocal Performance from the University of Houston. He has 13 years of music teaching experience, including musical theatre directing and professionally acting on stage with Houston Grand Opera for the last 12 consecutive years. Under his direction, the CCS choirs have excelled in both the TAPPS and Heritage Festival competitions, garnering several honors, and setting a new CCS historical record of achievement. Mr. Horn is delighted this year to be not only the Secondary Choir Director, but also the High School Speech and Debate teacher, and even has expanded his reach to teach 4th and 5th Grade Elementary Music. Speaking of reach, this year the CCS Chamber Choir continues to expand themselves in new areas of competition. The group will compete in the Early Music Festival at Texas Renaissance Festival, in addition to adding more singing performances at retirement communities as part of their ministry. The HS Chamber Choir will also hold several fundraisers to promote the CCS choir program and to help fund their annual competition with World Strides in April.
