Combined choral concert approaching
Adding a new twist to area musical presentations, the Senior High Chorus of Bolton Central will be hosting vocalists from Warrensburg High School for Bolton's Fall Concert, set for 7 p.m. Nov. 17 in the Bolton Central gymnasium. All are welcome to attend. On Nov. 3, the chorus members had reverse roles, with the BCS students performing in a concert at Warrensburg Central.
Bolton's choral director James Miller said this week that the joint effort is another way for small schools to give students a more comprehensive performance arts experience. Combining chorus groups brings different vocal ranges to the singing, he said. In addition to enhancing a students' musical education, it broadens their performance experience, he added.
Days off, conferences, events slated
Bolton Central School will not be holding classes Thursday Nov. 11 in observance of Veteran's Day, and on Friday, Nov. 12 as school staff participates in a staff development day. Also, classes will not be in session Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 24-26 to allow all to celebrate Thanksgiving.
The BCS Eagle marching band will once again be performing in the Glens Falls National Bank/South Glens Falls Holiday Parade. The procession will step off at 1 p.m. Sunday Nov. 21.
Remember that the Gore Mountain regional school ski program will include time on the slopes for students for six Sundays beginning Jan. 2. Registrations are due by Nov. 15.
