CHORUS STUDENT BRINGS INSPIRATION TO UNEXPECTED PLACE

Posted June 16 at 10:22am

Like most closet-like space, the storage room in the high school music suite has been seen as merely utilitarian – until chorus member Rebecca Biddle took another look at it.

 

Inspired by the June 12 Relay for Life event to support cancer research and individuals and families affected by cancer, Rebecca saw an opportunity to bring energy and meaning to the walls of the storage room. 

 

Putting her artistic talent to work, she combined the chorus logo with the theme imprinted on t-shirts used for the Relay for Life event and painted a mural that is sure to add light and hope to an otherwise unremarkable space. 

 

Thank you, Rebecca!

HIGH SCHOOL CHAMBER CHOIR AND SCHOOL COMMUNITY RAISE FUNDS FOR "RELAY FOR LIFE"

Posted June 15 at 4:52pm

The High School Chamber Choir participated in a luminary ceremony held during the American Cancer Society Relay for Life at Goshen High School on June 12. Joined by several alumni members, the chorus performed “In Remembrance” and “Sun and Moon" adding a special touch to this very moving ceremony.

 

Relay for Life raises funds for cancer research and to assist individuals battling cancer.  The Chamber Choir sponsored a team – Walk with Caitlin, Fly with Juliette – in memory of Caitlin Hammaren, a 2005 graduate, and Juliette Lia, a 2008 graduate. Counting over 170 participants, and together with the larger school community, the team raised over $14,000 towards this worthy cause. 

 

A special thank you to team captains Madeline Guyette, Rebecca Biddle, and all the parents who attended and supported the event.
