The choir, a select ensemble of 55 voices under the direction of Karl Wolf and Maureen Pollpeter, is preparing to embark on a performance tour of Philadelphia the week of March 10. In addition to visiting historic sites in Philadelphia, the students also will tour Gettysburg and Valley Forge. As part of the tour, the choir will perform at historic Christ Church.

The choir also will present a concert on March 6 at First United Methodist Church.

Thursday

• The Morrison High School music department will present a concert of American music at 7:30 p.m. in the school’s auditorium.

The concert will open with the symphonic choir performing a variety of American music, including “Chester,” “The Road Not Taken,” and “Soon-ah-Will-be-Done.”

The MHS concert band will continue with “A Copland Tribute,” which combines sections of Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for a Common Man” with “Appalachian Spring.”

Senior Alyssa Patten, daughter of Mike and Deanne Patten, will perform the first movement of “Concerto for Piano.” Alyssa’s mother, Deanne, performed the same piece her senior year of high school with MHS band instructor David Bean, then in his first year of conducting at MHS. The band will close the concert with John Philip Sousa’s march “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

The concert is free and open to the public.
