Congratulations to the Gunn Choirs on their fantastic success at the Anaheim Heritage Choral Festival on April 12th!! All three choirs (Concert Choir, Treble Choir, and Chamber Singers) received a Gold Rating, the highest level.
We were especially proud of our Treble Choir, which is a women’s choir of all 9th graders. To score so high at their first Festival was a great achievement. Concert Choir and Chamber Singers also received Adjudicator Awards, which are given to the highest scoring choirs at the Festival (95 or more points out of 100). Chamber Singers gave us a final thrill by taking home the prize as the First Place Chamber Choir. It was a fantastic event and a really wonderful weekend with great kids and great parent chaperones.

Alice Down the Healthcare Hole: A Musical Coma
MANY THANKS to everyone who joined us at this year’s choir/staff musical, Alice Down the Healthcare Hole — a modern take on Lewis Carroll! Poor poor Alice. Mesmerized by a White Rabbit in a lab coat, wearing a stethoscope, she followed him right down a dark hole into the absurdities of a place called Healthcare Land!
The show was great fun and played to an enthusiastic audience on both nights, February 5th and 6th. We could not have done it without you: our amazing Gunn community of students, parents, teachers, friends, and neighbors!!
Please check out more photos from the show – with Tweedle Dum, Tweedle Dee, Dodo Bird, Big Pharma, Alice and her cat, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Heart Surgeons, and the rest of the crew — and you can also order DVDs of the show. We are very grateful for your support.
Our 2013 Winter Concert
Thank you for joining us at the Winter Concert on December 12th! It was a beautiful evening celebrating the holidays of the season, in the warm and intimate environment of St. Mark’s Church in Palo Alto.

June 2013 Tour in France and Spain
The Gunn Choir performed four spectacular concerts in Nice and Avignon, France, and Barcelona and Manresa, Spain, in early June 2013. We departed for Europe the day after school ended — what a way to end the school year and to send the seniors of 2013 off into the world! Performing choral music in the medieval cathedrals of Europe is a life-changing experience for high school students, and the choir truly rose to the occasion. It was a fantastic trip from beginning to end, one we will never forget. Please visit our Facebook page and Youtube playlist for highlights from the tour.
