Home of the Eagles

We as a choir program had a great time recording our first concert of the year on Friday, September 25!  The concert theme was "Songs of Hope" and I am glad the students had the opportunity to sing songs of joy and peace at this tumultuous time.  It has been a wonderful start of the school year, and I am grateful for all of my students and their willingness to share their voices and their message with the world.
