All-state 2018:The Cane Bay High School Choirs are proud to announce that we had 22 students selected for the SC All-State Choirs! These students competed against almost 1900 singers from across SC and were among the 20% of singers who were selected for the choirs. They will travel to Winthrop University in March to participate in the All-State choir weekend. This is a huge honor for these singers! They participated in a 2 part audition that requires them to sing their part in 5 voice ensemble (one person to a part) on a selected piece, then, as an individual singer, they are given 1 minute to study and sight sing an example of music that they have never seen before. Congratulations to the following students for their accomplishment!
