Invitation to "Cantate" at Keene State College, Oct. 24

Hi everyone,

 I would like to invite you to join me and the High School Concert Chorus at the Cantate Choral Festival at Keene State College, on Friday, October 24. It would be delightful to have you with us! This is a fantastic event for our students, and I think you would be thrilled to experience it first hand.

Choirs from all over New England come to Keene State to participate in the festival, where they perform and receive on-stage coaching from college music faculty. The college choirs also perform, and the event ends with an "all sing" in which students from all participating schools perform together as a massive choir. It's a spectacular, inspiring event!

This is a great focal-point for my classroom instruction, both before and after the event. It's a very rich, authentic learning experience for our students.

Cantate is scheduled for 9am-1pm on Friday, October 24 at Keene State College. You are welcome to come with us on the bus, or you can drive separately if you need to come late or leave early (you will just need to pick up a visitor parking pass on campus). Once the performance schedule is set for the day, I can let you know what time our school will be performing.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about this. I hope you will consider joining us!

Sincerely,

Scott Halligan
