The Asheville Middle School choir is currently preparing for a performance later this month. The students will be performing at The Grant Center on January 23rd from 7:00 - 8:00pm after the Asheville Middle strings. After several mishaps just before winter break resulting in cancelled and improvised performances, this will be a chance for the students to properly show what they’ve been working on for the months since school started.
The performance will take place for a very special audience. The school board and superintendent will be attending the performance as well as any parents, friends, or family that would like to support the event. The chorus has picked two songs to perform out of the many they have learned this year. It will begin with “Hold Back the River”, a mellow alternative tune, featuring wonderful soloists from the choir which is then followed by “White Winter Hymnal”. The song “White Winter Hymnal” is an acapella holiday song that the students have performed previously which includes their own clapping and stomping beats. The performance is open to anyone wishing to see the students display their talents and they hope to see you there!
