County Choral Gala 2012

The 2012 All-County Chorale took place on Tuesday evening, Oct. 30, 2012 at the recently remodeled Saenger Theatre.

The High School, Middle School, and Elementary School All-County Honor Chorus participated in the event.  The Saenger was packed with parents, teachers, students, and staff from the district including the school board members and superintendent Thomas.

The works performed were choral pieces by such composers as Franz Joseph Haydn, Marta Keen, Bruce Trinkley, Keith Hampton, and many others.

The ensemble performed exceptionally well and everyone in attendance was delighted with the program-evidenced by multiple standing ovations.

We are fortunate in Escambia County to have a robust, effective Music and Arts program, and it will continue regardless of what transpires with the budget.
