Highland City Teen Chime Choir

Handchimes are laid out like piano keys.  Each chime is a different note, with each person responsible for just a few notes. A chime choir is cooperative, and students will learn rhythm, reading notes and counting, as well as teamwork. There is no instrument to rent or buy, and no outside practicing required, since the chimes cannot come home. Previous piano experience is a plus.  Every ringer is vitally important. We ask for a commitment to being at rehearsals and performances on time.

Paige Erickson is our chime choir instructor. Paige has a BS in Elementary Education from BYU, has served on the PTA board for many years, and has been a substitute teacher. She has been playing hand bells with the Bells on Temple Square for over 10 years, and has led an elementary chime choir for 3 years.

This is a unique opportunity to play hand chimes in a fun setting where you are not graded.

Who can be in the chime choir?  Kids 12 and up.  Limit of 20

Mondays 3:00-4:30 at the Highland Community Center  beginning Jan 11, 2016.   No choir on school holidays.  We will finish up with a concert at the beginning of May.

Tuition is $75.00.  To register call Paige Erickson at 801-830-0927 or email. paige@ericksonfamily.com



 Practices will be on Thursday afternoons 4-6pm in January, February, March (not Wednesdays).

Open to youth ages 12-18.

Highland City Arts Council is very pleased and excited to announce our 2016 Theatre season!


The Curious Savage will be presented by the

Highland City Arts Council at the 

Highland City Community Center,

February 22nd, 24th-27th, 29th, at 8 PM

Tickets are $8 for Students/Children/Seniors and $10 for Adults and are available from ShowTix.com or at the door

(cash or checks only please)

See highlandcityarts.com for more information.

The shows we will be  performing this year include The Curious Savage in the spring and Wait Until Dark in the fall over the Halloween week. The Curious Savage is a popular comedy that deals with a step-family in the 50’s. It includes 6 women and 5 men in the cast with one small boy who makes a cameo appearance. Wait Until Dark is a play well known because of the Audrey Hepburn movie version that was made in 1967. It is a “scary” play that centers around a blind woman who is home alone. I’m not sure the exact casting requirements but a 12 year old girl plays a huge part

Auditions times and dates for the play will be announced shortly.


The Creekside Theatre Fest. Combined with Cedar Hills Arts Council. Opening night will preview a concert in the park.  Shows will be running in June for 2 1/2 weeks on alternating nights. The shows we are doing are Once On This Island and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. You can show them the website if you’d like: www.creeksidetheatrefest.org that talks about the shows and schedule and directors etc.
