SF Ensemble To Present Invitational Concert
This year’s concert will feature vocalists from Southern Huntingdon High School performing selections from the school’s recent production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” The concert is held each year to commemorate Music In Our Schools Month as designated by the National Association for Music Education.
The ensemble is a 17-member extra-curricular mixed chorus chosen by audition. The group has been performing for nearly four decades. This year’s repertoire includes the ukulele version of “Over the Rainbow,” featuring soloist Noah Smartt, the Zambian folk tune “Bonse Aba,” featuring soloist Shad Gordon and a Civil War love song, “Your Love Was a River,” featuring soloist Melanie Deneen. Other songs to be performed include “Steam Heat” from musical, “The Pajama Game,” and the Rascal Flatts hit tune, “ Bless the Broken Road.”
The purpose of the concert is to recognize and celebrate the diversity of music tradition in area school districts. This year marks the second performance of Southern Huntingdon students in the event and the first to include a Broadway show cast. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for students. The Ensemble and director Dan Meredith express their thanks to the community for its continued support of music in our schools.
