Spring Concert in Center City: Saturday, May 2!!

Hello Cheltenham Choirs!

As you know, our spring choir concert is this Saturday, May 2, 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 and together. 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 percussion and strings. Repertoire ranges from a Schubert “Kyrie” with strings and organ, to an Iroquois song with rainsticks, to a doo-wop song including scat solos–and more. It will be a very exciting concert!

The afternoon of Satuday the 2nd, we will take buses from CHS to the concert site. 

Students should arrive in the choir room by 1:00 pm Saturday, May 2, for attendance/roll call. The buses will leave CHS promptly at 1:05 pm.

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

All students should bring a water bottle. Granola bars will be provided by our Boosters; students may choose to bring another snack. 

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

Parking: The church has no private parking, but you have several easy options. 1) Street parking. 2) The pay lot behind the Christ Church Neighborhood House (next door to the church), or 3) Penn’s Landing, which is only 2 blocks away at the end of Market and has plenty of parking.

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 Cheltenham Choirs!!! See you all on Saturday!
