Concert to feature blended voices of choral students
Florence School District One will present the All-City Choral Concert on Monday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m. at South Florence High School. The All-City Chorus is the school district’s largest concert choir made up of student voices from South Florence, West Florence, and Wilson High Schools. This is the 40th year of the All-City Concert performances.
The concert is sponsored by the Florence District One music department. Guest conductor for the All City Choral Concert is Dr. Jaeyoon Kim, Associate Professor of Voice and Choir at the University of North Carolina, Pembroke. The choir will sing a varied selection of music including a rendition of the Honor and Glory by J S Bach. Each high school choral group will also present a special musical selection.
According to Florence One Performing Arts Coordinator Laura Greenway who has served as the coordinator of the event for the past 30 years, the purpose of the concert is to provide students the opportunity to: learn new music; experience a new viewpoint about musical styles by working with a guest conductor; receive rewards for their individual dedication to the music program; and, learn how to work cooperatively in an atmosphere of non-competition with students from other schools.
The concert is free and open to the public. It should last for approximately 45 minutes.
