We have decided to cancel our performance at the Pumpkin Lantern Festival this year. Tricky decision, but we’re sticking to it. With the wind, it would have knocked our stands over and sent music everywhere. The rain would not have been great for certain instruments. With the unknown of whether or not (pun intended) if would have cleared up, we chose to cancel.
We will be sure to have a performance in the next week or two (Playing in the snake pit to welcome students into school on their rehearsal day, creating an impromptu performance for students/parents during a Conn3ct block, etc).
Thank you for understanding. Please spread the word – and if possible, send me a quick response so that I can be sure you received the message.

C.H.S. Presents "The Mob" -Nov. 6-9th
It's springtime - hundreds of Crows set out on their yearly migration and converge at the Gathering Tree. This sacred Gathering is an opportunity for the six crow Clans of the Family Kinaar to assemble, to make decisions and to celebrate being together.
But when young blood is lost, sacred laws are tested as an illegal Mob seeks revenge, and a division threatens the unity of the flock. The family's situation is made yet more precarious when a severe blizzard hits and the Crows are faced with the dilemma of where to find shelter. Breaking age-old decrees and working together may offer their only chance of survival ...
Here is a startling view of the world from a birds-eye perspective, complete with its own set of beliefs, mythologies and politics. But it's a world familiar to us too - where the needs of the individual often clash with those of the group, and where the desire to be free must be tempered with the need to be safe, to survive.
Oct. 15- 17th Update
Good afternoon music families,
Here are a few important updates:
Big Chief Fundraiser
Dear Parents and/or Guardians,
The Cochrane High School Performing Arts and Technical Theatre program aim to afford students a variety of opportunities to experience music and theatre. It is these experiences that encourage our students to achieve a high standard of excellence and gain excitement and passion for theatre as a process and an art form.
In order to maintain this standard of excellence, the Performing Arts community here at Cochrane High School is committed to using fundraising to afford the students the opportunity to participate in learning activities.
This semester we will be taking advantage of a fundraising opportunity presented by Big Chief Meat Snacks.
Here’s how it works,
Funds will be transferred into a student’s account that can be used for future events and activities... including trips to New York City or Cantando in Edmonton!
We thank you for your support and belief in the Cochrane High School Performing Arts Program. We look forward to working with you in the future, and we invite you to attend The Mob by Calgary’s own Clem Martini.
