CLMS choirs earn superior ratings at festival


Friday, May 13th, was a lucky day for Canyon Lake Middle School’s choir students. This year the Cougar Choir and the Honor Choir both won “Superior” ratings at the High Note Music Festival, held in Buena Park. According to Director Robbin Bouslog, each choir sang three selections and the judges evaluated their performances. The students earned a score ranking them in the top 10 percent of the nation for middle school choirs.

This was the first year CLMS had two choirs. The Honor Choir had 45 students and the Cougar Choir had 25. All of the singers worked individually and as a group to improve their vocal skills throughout the school year. The members were excited and very proud of their vocal achievement.

Robbin, a Canyon Lake resident, has been teaching choir at Canyon Lake Middle School since it opened in 2002. She says she is excited about the students who have registered for her choir classes next year, with 51 currently signed up for Honor Choir and 35 for Cougar Choir. She is looking forward to helping her students once again strive for superior scores.

Robbin also is the director of the Canyon Lake Choraleers, which held its spring concert, “We Sing Broadway,” on May 22.
