SENIOR CHOIR TO PERFORM AT CARNEGIE HALL
Newfield Senior High Choir has been invited to perform on the stage of world famous Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 17, 2015! The performance is part of the Carnegie Hall series The Legacy of Eminent Choral Directors featuring Dr. Peggy Dettwiler of Mansfield University as Honoree and Artistic Director. The series is composed of choirs directed by select conductors that have studied under Dr. Dettwiler's baton. The Newfield Senior High Choir has been selected amongst the finest groups from her 25 year career as a teacher and conductor. The concert will showcase each individual choir, including a ten minute set by Newfield. The concert finale will feature a combined choir consisting of all the students performing two pieces under the direction of Dr. Dettwiler herself.
As is normal in show-business, there is a cost for transportation and to reserve the hall, as well as write-ups in Playbill and professional photography. As part of the fundraising effort, the choir is selling tickets to the performances for $50, an extremely reasonable price for such a renowned hall in the theatre district! The monies collected from ticket sales go directly to the choir. Also available for sale are seats on a charter bus that will provide transportation directly to and from the afternoon concert. Order forms can be found with each member of the choir, or by contacting Alex MacDonald directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) There will also be a Fine Arts Booster spaghetti dinner on October 23rd from 5:00-7:00 pm.
