Congratulations to the La Canada High School Chamber Singers, the winner of KUSC’s Local Vocals High School Choir Sing-off! Nearly 4,000 votes were cast in the final round of voting, and today at 4 p.m. the winner was announced on KUSC by host Rich Capparela.
Special recognition also goes to the two runners-up in the Sing-Off, the Mira Costa High School Vocal Ensemble and the Tesoro High School Madrigals Choir.
Classical KUSC would like to thank all the choirs who participated in the Local Vocals High School Choir Sing-Off. There is a tremendous amount of young talent in Southern California, and KUSC is proud to have worked with NPR's From The Top and the Pacific Symphony to bring this talent to a broad audience here at home and around the world.
