2022 - 2023 Course Selection

NCHS teachers will be making course recommendations for next year just prior to the upcoming February break. Students in grades 9, 10 and 11 will then have access through the school portal to make preliminary selections. 

During a Connections meeting, students will review the steps for choosing their schedule and a tutorial will be forwarded as a refresher. Counselors will meet with each of their students through March to review their selections and answer questions.

NCHS Band + Choir + Orchestra Collaborative Concert
Tuesday, Feb 8 | 7:00 PM

The New Canaan High School band, choir and orchestra programs will perform a collaborative concert in the NCHS auditorium on Tuesday, February 8 at 7:00pm. NCHS Music teachers Scott Cranston, Leo Ficks and Sarah Gleason have been working with their students during the past month preparing for this concert that will feature over 100 of our high school musicians. Although each group performs regularly throughout each school year, they always look forward to joining forces in this annual celebration of collaborative music-making.

This year, they will present together an arrangement of Christopher Tin’s Baba Yetu, the theme song for the video game Civilization IV and the first to be nominated for and win a Grammy award (2011). Also featured is a collaboration lead by Mr. Ficks with the orchestra and band students in “Arith-metric”,  a modern composition that is minimalist and structured in a round.
