The choir will be performing all-new music composed by Mendoza specifically for this collaboration.

Building on the success of the composer-in-residence partnership that Young Audiences has fostered between contemporary artists working in the music industry and the Camas High School Choir since 2016, Mendoza has been working with Chessin and his students this school year to create an original performance for a rock band, woodwinds, and 200 high school singers.

A special shout out to Sami Holm, CHS senior, who created the press release for this event!
