Diamond Canyon School Choir Wins National Competition

Diamond Canyon‘s 7th and 8th Grade Choir took first place in a national competition in Anaheim, CA earlier this month. It’s the third time in six years the school’s choir has won the competition, said Choir Director Caroline Kaupa.

The kids “pulled off a stellar performance in the Middle School Concert Choir category,” Kaupa said. They also received a Festival of Gold certificate and an accompanying invitation to sing at New York City’s Carnegie Hall next spring. Making that trek would require a lot of planning, Kaupa said.

“Many of my fellow colleagues and choir parents are behind the idea,” she said. “With a lot of support, I think we could do it.”
