SFHS Ensemble To Hold Invitational Concert
The second annual SFHS Ensemble Invitational concert will be held at Southern Fulton High School on Saturday, March 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Each year, two other high schools are invited to perform with the SFHS Ensemble as part of its Music In Our Schools Month Concert.
March is designated Music In Our Schools Month by the Music Educators National Conference and is celebrated by schools across the country.
This year, ensembles from Southern Huntingdon High School in Three Springs, Pa., under the direction of Mrs. Nanette Thomas, and Bald Eagle Area High School in Wingate, Pa., under the direction of Eric Brinser, will travel to Southern Fulton to perform. The groups will perform both popular and traditional choral music.
The tradition of the Ensemble concert began in the late 1970s as a Christmas dinner concert. In the late 1980s, the concert became a Music In Our Schools Month Concert. In the early 1990s, the event was changed from a dinner concert to an ice cream social.
Admission to the concert is $3 for adults and $2 for students.
Proceeds will benefit the SFHS Choral Activity Fund. The public is invited to attend.
