Concert Choir

About the Ensemble

Celebrating their twenty-fifth season as the top auditioned ensemble of Champlin Park High School’s now 300-voice vocal music program, the Concert Choir performs unique and challenging mixed repertoire under the direction of Ms. Laura Tempel. The ensemble performs eight to ten concerts per year.

In 2015, the Concert Choir was one of six high school choirs chosen to perform at the Minnesota Music Educators Association Midwinter Clinic. The ensemble was also selected as one of five choirs from across the state to sing with Dr. Edith Copley as part of the American Choral Directors Association Minnesota Choral Arts Finale in April 2011.

As an International Baccalaureate World School, many students participate in advanced classroom and instrumental music coursework beyond the Concert Choir.

Concert Choir is directed by Ms. Laura Tempel and an abbreviated syllabus can be found here.

Auditions for Concert Choir are held each spring for the following academic year.
