The SHS Choir presents a salute to the “Best Songs” of the Academy Awards from 1935-2015 in its’ annual “Great American Songbook” concert Thursday, March 19 at 7:15 pm in the Performing Arts Center.
22 soloists will share the spotlight with the High School Choir, SMS Mixed Choir, and the Large Men’s Ensemble. That’s the Ensemble that’s large. The Men all come in different sizes.
Senior Steven Morgan will narrate the free performance.
GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK 2015
Based on the latest weather projections for our area, I have decided to withdraw our SHS students from Saturday’s ISSMA State Solo-Ens Festival at Perry Meridian High School. Conditions will create problems for families on their way up and uncertain conditions on a return trip. We as a school and department can’t endorse this.
Every student that earned this honor is to be commended, and no one or nothing can take that away from them and the honor they have brought to their school. WSP
Although District Solo-Ensemble Festivals have weather make-up dates, the State Festival is a much different situation, as the facility itself and hotel rooms, flights, meals, etc. for judges and workers are planned far in advance for this very large event. Outlook for now shows some more reasonable temperatures and little troublesome weather forecast for Saturday. Plan on the event running as scheduled.
We are looking at the possibility of working with Allison Friday night, those plans will be posted here and on Twitter as soon as details are worked out.

STATE SOLO-ENSEMBLE 2015
Due to the severe weather and low temperatures, we are cancelling the Recital planned for Thursday night, Feb. 19. We are looking at the possibility of being able to do run-throughs with our accompanist Friday evening. Either way, State Festival is a “GO”, and students should report to their assigned Warm-Up Room at Perry Meridian High School 45 minutes ahead of performance time on Saturday, Feb.21. Parents or students with questions feel free to contact Mr. S-P. Schedules and information are posted at SalemChoirs.org.
