The Clarke County High School Choir under the direction of Dr. Ryan Keebaugh invites the community to a spring concert on Tuesday, May 24, 7 p.m., at the Johnson-Williams Middle School auditorium. A variety of musical styles will be performed.
The CCHS Women’s Choir will open with selections by Z. Randall Stroope, Eric Whitacre, Rene Clausen, Paul Simon and Robert Ray.
The CCHS Chamber Choir will perform works by Moses Hogan, Joyce Eilers, John Lennon, Dan Forrest and U2. Other traditional selections include Shenandoah, Wayfarin’ Stranger and Danny Boy.
The concert is free and open to the public.
A donation box will be available for those who wish to contribute to the Chamber Choir’s planned 2012 trip to New York City.
