Choirs at Canyon...

There are five choirs at Canyon High School; Bella Nova Women's Choir, Bella Voce Women’s Choir, Chorale (Varsity Mixed Choir) and Men's Choir.  The high school choirs participate in TMEA Vocal competitions, UIL Solo and Ensemble Contest, UIL Concert & Sight Reading Contest, as well as presenting four concerts throughout the school year and often participating in a spring choral festival or performance in conjunction with a spring trip.  

The Canyon Choir Booster Organization has been established for parents of the students in our Middle School and High School Choir programs.  Parents are invited to join our organization to help support the students and their activities through Choir.
