Spring Showcase 2018

The final Boone Chorus concert of the year, Spring Showcase, is next week and you have TWO chances to see it! Shows are Thursday, 4/19, and Friday, 4/20, at 7pm. Advance ticket order forms were sent home with student on Monday, 4/9.

VIP tickets include preferred seating, French-inspired hors d’oeuvres and beverages before the show and at intermission; General admission is $7 and VIP tickets are $15. OCPS staff get in free (general admission) with their school ID.

This concert will feature the REQUIEM by Gabriel Faure, an extended work written for choir and orchestra. Then you’ll hear special performances by each choir, and the annual Senior Song– “Go the Distance” from Hercules. We’ll present music from Music Performance Assessment as well as some lighter fare.

We would love to sell out both nights. Please share the dates with friends and family. Thank you all for your support of our students! We are excited to showcase all their hard work from this school year.

Chorus Calendar for April-May 2018

Please post this calendar on your fridge or transfer the dates to your personal calendar. A hard copy was distributed to students when we returned from Spring Break. Students were advised to circle those events that apply to them. All these dates are on our Google calendar, but we wanted to give everyone a hard copy since it’s such a busy month for the chorus program. We are really looking forward to the Spring Showcase concerts on April 19-20, which is the final product after all these rehearsals. Let us know if you have any questions.
