Mission Statement

 

CBJ Choir will prepare all of our students through an exemplary arts education program, to be creative and expressive participants as successful world-class learners and responsible human beings.

 

As a member of any singing ensemble you will further develop your musicianship and total understanding of music in such a way that you can continue to enjoy, learn, and perform music as an independent musician. Your CBJ Choral experience will not only prepare you to perform in high school but will prepare you so that you can enjoy music throughout your life as a performer, creator, or consumer of music.
