In observance of the Salem-Washington County Bicentennial, the Middle School and High School Choirs are presenting concerts of American folksong on October 23 and October 30, respectively (see Events).
SHS Choir artifacts – including programs, recordings, and personal notes to each student – were assembled for inclusion in the Time Capsule at Salem Public Library. Also included are notes that the High School and 7th-8th grade students wrote to their own future.
The capsule will be opened 50 years from now, and a Time Capsule Cover Letter was included so that our 2014 Choir students can access the material, and retrieve notes addressed to them in the year 2064.
In connection with all this, we photographed the High School Choir on the steps of the Courthouse, and made an informal music video:
Special thanks to Photographer Jasmine Bryant, Librarian Jill Duchemin, and of course, to the students for making this a memorable project.
