CCSF helps students make beautiful music (in 1996)

Today’s historical artifact comes to us from July of 1996 – a newspaper article from The Villager about the first-of-its-kind Summer Chorale Experience at Cherry Creek High School.

54 students in grades 7-12 attended a week-long choir intensive funded by the Cherry Creek Schools Foundation and the Kenneth Kendal King Foundation. The week culminated in a free concert for more than 350 parents, friends, and community members. Students learned from CCSD staff as well as music professors from colleges around the country. Margie Camp, who was the Campus Middle School choir director, shared that students were able to learn a lot from this experience, pushing and expanding their music theory knowledge.

“This program is for young people that really, really like choir. The kids were exposed to music technology - keyboards, computers, and how to sequence music on computers,” said Camp.

SIDE NOTE: In 1996, computers were just beginning to be part of the educational landscape, and CCSD was leading the way to ensure students had the technological skills needed to compete in a new landscape. Today, the district continues to use leading technology and one program the district uses is Soundtrap, where students as young as 2nd grade can record, edit, mix, and master their own performances!
