FALL FOLLIES: October 20, 22, 23
      Our concert season will begin on Thursday, October 20, Saturday, October 22, and Sunday afternoon, October 23 with our Fall Follies “Broadway” production. The Thursday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 pm and the Sunday matinee begins at 2:30 pm.

The Broadway theme has been used twice previously but the excitement and enthusiasm of a cast of nearly 300 students to entertain you couldn’t be greater. This year’s Follies will again be performed in the style of a true Vaudeville show with music from the Golden Age through today’s contemporary Broadway. And let’s not forget that Follies will feature a variety of talented specialty acts as well, so each night is a completely different show!

  Our Winter Choral Concert will be held on December 8 at 7:30 pm. Please note that the date was moved from the original date (December 14) announced last spring, in order to better accommodate the midterm exam schedule.

The Winter Choral concert will focus on seasonal secular songs that celebrate Winter. The performance will serve as the students' second quarter grade and close out our first semester together. Best wishes on the midterm exams!

2017 MUSICAL: THE WIZARD OF OZ: February 23, 24, 25 and 26

Did you notice the excitement and community buzz at last year’s Spring concert as our Keith Krieger award winner, Hunter John, announced that the annual musical will be The Wizard of Oz? The stage production is based completely on the movie we have all grown to love.

AUDITIONS for The Wizard of Oz will be held on November 14, 15, and 16.

CALLBACKS are scheduled for November 17 and 18.

We are now challenged with the monumental task of making sure that none of the magic of the story is lost when it transfers from film to the stage. Our performance of The Wizard Of Oz will run Thursday February 23, Friday February 24, and Saturday February 25 at 2:30 and 7:30. We will have a Sunday matinee on February 26 at 2:30 pm.

  The Poetry Concert will be performed on the evening of Wednesday, March 8 at 7:30 pm. The Poetry Concert is dedicated to repertoire that sets great poetic text to music, and this year we hope to expand our boundaries and borders to include some of the great poetic works from around the world in their language of origin.
  The 15th annual Wonderful Night of Piano Music will take place on Thursday, March 9.

These master classes will be given during class by the world-class pianist Dr. Tom Scott, from Cleveland, OH. He will perform on the refurbished Knabe 9’ grand piano and the 9’ Grotrian piano. The master classes will culminate in an evening performance involving piano students performing with Dr. Tom Scott. All proceeds from ticket sales will go into the East Coast Tour to NYC in April.

EAST COAST TOUR: April 5 - 9
  The Symphonic Choir will take our 8th educational performance tour to New York City via Pittsburgh and Philadelphia from April 5 - 9. The tour will allow the students to perform literature in some the world’s most famous cathedrals including St Patrick’s Cathedral and St. John the Divine Cathedral.

Along the way we plan to give 5 performances with two of them involving an exchange concert with high school choirs in the Pittsburgh suburbs. The 5-day tour will allow the students to visit and perform in environments that cannot be recreated in central Ohio.The tour provides national exposure for the city of Upper Arlington, the school system, and the music department. This wonderful educational experience is designed to provide a lifetime of memories for the student musicians.

  In the interest of both honoring our senior class and keeping our spring concert music-focused, we are having the Senior Recognition and Dessert on Wednesday, May 17 at 7:00 pm. The senior class will be given the opportunity to share their memorable experiences focusing on their accomplishments during their high school tenure.

Senior solos and specialty acts as well as the senior video will all be performed at this event with dessert following in the lobby.

  Finally, we will close our time together with our Spring Concert and Major Work on Thursday, May 18 at 7:00 pm. The literature for this concert will be based on the cultural diversity found in our choral program, the high school, and the community as a whole. In addition to the world music theme, we are choosing folk literature that also involves the folk dances from around the world.
