Third Annual SFHS Ensemble Invitational Concert March 19
The third annual Southern Fulton High School Ensemble Invitational Concert will be held at Southern Fulton High School on Saturday, March 19 at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Each year, the Ensemble extends an invitation to other high schools to perform in 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 Clearfield Area High School, under the direction of Mel McConnell; Huntingdon Area High School, under the direction of Nin Hiles; and James Buchanan High School, under the direction of Eric Poe, will travel to Southern Fulton to perform. The groups will perform both popular and traditional choral music. Each group will perform a segment of the program and then combine for two selections as a finale.
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. In 2009, the new tradition of the invitational concert began.
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.
