Important Details for Upcoming Concert in Center City: Sunday, February 24!!!

Hello Cheltenham Choirs!

As you know, our second concert of the year is Sunday, February 24, at Christ Church, in Center City.

(Directions are here.)

This concert presents an exceptional opportunity to sing in a beautiful, historical space. All four choirs will perform separately, as combined women’s and men’s groups, and as one massed choir. We will be accompanied by Parker Kitterman, Director of Music at Christ Church, on both piano and organ. Student instrumentalists will accompany our singers on clarinet, sax, and percussion. Repertoire ranges from movie soundtrack music in French and Latin, to a German Romantic piece with organ, to contemporary American choral music, to a fancy, fun choral version of Old MacDonald.–and more. It will be a very exciting concert!

The afternoon of Sunday the 24th, we will take buses from CHS to the concert site. 

Students should arrive in the choir room by 1:00 pm Sunday, February 24, for attendance/roll call. The buses will leave CHS promptly at 1:15 pm.

When we arrive in the city, we will warm-up and rehearse in the performance space.

All students should bring a water bottle and a snack.

The concert will begin at 5:00 pm and conclude around 6:15 pm.

Parents and families, we hope you will join us for this wonderful concert!  And perhaps take the opportunity to go out to dinner in the city after the show!

Those students who will return to Cheltenham with their families–not on the bus–must notify Ms. Hutton of that plan this week in class. All other students will return to Cheltenham on the buses; they should be picked up at the high school around 7:15 pm.

Looking forward to a fantastic showcase for our CHS Choirs!!! Thanks to you all for your support of our student musicians’ excellent work!
