ALL-ABOUT ALL-STATE: All-State Band, Choir, + Orchestra Festival kicked off at Chugiak High on Thursday, November 18th. Pretty much every empty room in the building has been utilized to make this event happen in person. They brought together dozens of the best student musicians from all over Alaska. This two-day intensive workshop, with directors of national acclaim, culminates in a series of concerts at West High’s auditorium on Saturday. Please join us in congratulating the 20+ Chugiak Students who were selected to represent CHS at this prestigious event.
