Summer Music Website
Dear Parents and Students,
Summer is coming with all the promises of fun in the great outdoors. Why not include a music event in your summer outings? Try a concert at the Mann Music Center or a visit to Longwood Gardens for one of their outdoor fountain shows put to music.
Another great musical opportunity this summer is the Chester Children’s Chorus summer concerts in July. Many of our friends from the Frederick Douglass Christian School are members of this outstanding performing group under the direction of the amazingly talented and dedicated John Alston . The public is invited to attend the open dress rehearsal at 2 pm on Thursday, July 23rd or one of the evening performances on Friday, July 24th or Saturday, July 25th at 7:30 pm. All performances are in the Lang Concert Hall at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA. There is no fee for admission!
I look forward to seeing everyone in September and hope to hear how you included music in your summer plans. When we return to school, we will be preparing for our first special music activity of the year—“Friendship Day” with our friends from the Frederick Douglass Christian School.
Have a safe and happy summer!
