Centennial High School Choir members pose with the $1,000 check from Fulton Homes for being named the winner of the first Noon Salute Program for the 2018-19 school year.

Centennial High School’s Bel Canto Choir has been recognized as one of the best music programs in the Valley after being named as the first winner of this year’s Fulton Homes’ Noon Salute program. Under the direction of Cheryl Tucker, the Bel Canto Choir will receive a $1,000 check from the Tempe-based home builder.
The words Bel Canto mean “beautiful singing.” Bel Canto Choir is the top “varsity” ensemble at Centennial High School. This group consists of 26 singers who do a variety of music and touring throughout the school year. Along with the four school concerts they hold a year, Bel Canto also sings at hospitals, retirement homes, festivals, competitions, and other community functions. To be in this audition-only group you have to not only be talented at singing but have good leadership skills, motivation, and a positive attitude. The check presentation took place Nov. 5 at Centennial High School, 143888 N. 79th Ave., Peoria.
For the eighth consecutive year, Fulton Homes has partnered with 94.5 KOOL FM for its popular Noon Salute program. Noon Salute recognizes local middle school and high school music programs that submit their rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner.” Each week a winner is chosen to have their performance played on KOOL FM at noon each day. At the end of each month, one of the weekly winners will be awarded a $1,000 check from Fulton Homes.
Additionally, each band’s performance will be available at https://kool.radio.com/contest/fulton-homes-noon-salute for others to listen to.
The program was created to recognize and reward middle and high school musicians and their hard work and dedication to their musical studies, as well as teachers and band directors who develop their musical talents.
“Bel Canto Choir is one of the best groups in the Valley,” Fulton Homes CEO Doug Fulton said. “Throughout the years we have received many wonderful responses to Noon Salute from students, band directors, principals, parents and homebuyers. Every performance of the National Anthem by these students – whether it is an orchestra, band or choral group – is unique.”
Band directors, principals and others can enter their school’s version of the “The Star Spangled Banner” for a chance to be featured and win the $1,000. To enter, schools can call 94.5 KOOL FM at (602) 452-1000 and schedule a time for them to come in and record their music program.
To listen to the bands, play the National Anthem, tune in to 94.5 KOOL FM every day at noon.
