Caprock High School Choir offers four choral ensembles with over 100 students in grades 9-12. Our students perform in several performances each year, including the Fall Concert, Caprock Classics, Holiday Concert, Battle of the Voices, Pre-UIL Concert, Black Diamond Dinner, and Combined Fine Arts Spring Concert: Caprock’s Taste of the Arts. Schola Cantorum made history in 2013 by earning the first UIL Choir sweepstakes in the history of the school with their varsity mixed choir. The choir made history again in 2014 by earning three sweepstakes trophies with the Varsity Mixed, Varsity Women, and Varsity Men’s choirs. We strive for musical excellence in our daily rehearsals. We hope to graduate students with a better understanding of not only music and singing, but dedication and a good sense of community through our ensembles.
