SFHS Invites Community To Join Chorus
Southern Fulton High School choirs will be performing the Christmas musical “Night of Alleluias.” Once again, the choirs are inviting alumni, local church choir members and all interested adults in the community to join them in the performance. The Southern Fulton choirs have been joined by an adult community choir biennially since 1992.
“Night of Alleluias” is a cantata featuring a blend of traditional and contemporary Christmas music. The performance will feature senior high chorus, junior high chorus, S.F.H.S. Ensemble, and adult community members under the direction of Dan Meredith. High school students will be featured as soloists and narrators. The combined choirs performed this particular cantata in 2004. Many participants at that time expressed a desire to repeat the selection in the future.
Interested adults will be charged a registration fee of $15 to cover the cost of the music and a rehearsal CD. (Participants who have the music and CD from the 2004 performance do not need to pay the registration fee.) The rehearsal CD will feature professional vocalists performing the cantata highlighting the appropriate voice part for each singer. Each adult is expected to learn his or her own part. The ability to read music is helpful but not necessary. There will be three evening rehearsals for the adults to practice with the students.
The date for the concert is Sunday, Dec. 5, 2010, at 3:00 p.m. The evening rehearsals will be Monday, Nov. 15, Monday, Nov. 22, and Thursday, Dec. 2. All rehearsals will begin at 7 p.m. Books and CDs will be distributed and a read-through of the program will be held on Monday, Oct. 18, 2010, at 7 p.m. The concert and all rehearsals will take place in the S.F.H.S. auditorium. Participants do not need to be at every rehearsal if there are schedule conflicts.
Registration deadline is September 21, 2010. Registration forms are available from students in chorus or by writing to Dan Meredith, Southern Fulton High School, 13083 Buck Valley Road, Warfordsburg, PA 17267, by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling the school at 294- 3251, ext 221.
