Spring Choir Concert: May 10 at 7:00pm

We’re having our first and only choir concert of the year at the school. The program will last about an hour. Of course our program features great music by the choirs, but it’ll also feature a few small groups and soloists! Come listen to some Disney, Musical Theater, Pentatonix and more! See you there!

Spring Orchestra Concert: May 12 at 7:00pm

It’s time for the Orchestra Spring Concert here in the school gym! The program will feature all three of our school orchestras, as well as some of the performances from this year’s solo and ensemble competition. You won’t want to miss your only chance to hear the orchestras live in concert this school year!
