The CVHS advanced choirs visited Angwin, California to compete in the Golden State Choral Festival against other schools on May 19. Golden State is a choir competition in which only the top choirs in the state are invited to compete. The CVHS chamber choir, Madrigals, won third place in its division.
The Castro Valley Acapella Choir left the competition with a fifth place trophy. This is the first time in many years that both advanced choirs placed at Golden State, and the entire choir student body is very proud.
This is the last big event that the choirs will do for this school year, and for many seniors, the last time they sing with the CVHS choir.
Senior Amelia Ortiz is extremely grateful for this year’s batch of choir students. “I think everyone really cared this year,” said Ortiz. “Everyone tried hard and wanted to rehearse and do well at competition. It was a mixture of knowing the music, but also all the heart and dedication from every individual student.”
