• The Colleyville Heritage High School Panther Choir seeks to provide a rich music education for students with an emphasis on building strong character through music participation. With over 200 students in multiple ensembles, the CHHS Choral program has established a long tradition of excellence. Students in the Panther Choir maintain active performance schedules both as ensemble members and as soloists. The Panther Choirs consistently earn sweepstakes awards at UIL Concert & Sight-Reading Competition and have received accolades at festival performances throughout the United States. In 2003 under the direction of Danny Detrick the Panther Chorale was honored to perform as an Invited Choir for the Texas Music Educator's Convention. Individually students regularly place in the TMEA Region 24 Choir, National and Regional ACDA Honor Choirs, the Texas All-State Choir, and consistently receive superior ratings at Solo & Ensemble Contest.

    Classroom Expectations
    Certain standards are necessary for the integrity and reputation of any organization. Every choir member will be expected to display manners, follow school rules, meet deadlines, and always represent CHHS and the choir with pride and dignity. Choir members are expected to have and maintain a character above reproach. Not following school rules both in and out of choir may result in loss of membership and all of the privileges of the group. Members of the Panther Choir are expected to demonstrate the following:

    Professionalism by displaying self-discipline, working well with others, having an attitude of respect of the director and other school staff, and displaying the qualities of a professional musician.

    Responsibility through punctuality, following through with commitments, bringing supplies to rehearsal, communicating with the staff, delivering information to parents, and making a marked effort to improve musical skills and learn repertoire. 

    Integrity through honesty with the director, oneself, and other students, regular attendance at school and out of school rehearsals and events.

    Dignity by adhering to the campus dress code, using appropriate language and etiquette, displaying self-motivation in rehearsal, presenting oneself in a well groomed manner, and presenting a positive image for the organization.

    Empathy through sensitivity and acceptance of diversity, displaying kindness and encouragement to peers, and showing sympathy for others.
