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.
Performances and Competition
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.
