Copper Hills High Madrigals Win Radio Station’s Chamber Choir Competition

Picture of CHHS MadrigalsIt was a holiday competition where the sweet sounds of high school madrigals filled the airwaves. BYU Broadcasting held its annual High School Chamber Choir Competition on KBYU FM Classical ’89. Copper Hills High competed with other schools by showing up at the radio station and recording three holiday numbers. The Madrigals were then allowed to choose the song they wanted to air on Classical ‘89 as part of the competition. The Copper Hills High Madrigals performed ‘O Magnum Mysterium,’ and after a panel of expert judges listened and then cast their votes along with an audience vote on the Classical ’89 Facebook page – the Copper Hills High madrigals were announced as the judges’ and audience favorite!

Winning the competition means the CHHS Madrigals will be invited back to BYU Broadcasting in the spring to do a full radio show called “Highway 89,” which features local musicians.

Congratulation CHHS Madrigals!

Columbia Elementary Faculty and Staff Help Feed Those in Need

Picture of food collectedIt was a labor of love for the Columbia Elementary School community. Faculty and staff at the school realized that some children and their families could use a little help going into the holiday season, so they organized a small food drive that turned into something pretty big. Employees collected enough food for parents to come and shop for items they needed while they were at school for parent/teacher conferences. The success of the food drive is a great example of how much Columbia cares and how much students and their families are loved.
