The entire community is invited to attend the upcoming Spring Concert featuring local choir students Thursday, May 11 in the ACHS cafeteria. Adair County students ranging from elementary school-aged through high school will perform, starting at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free to the public.
“These students have improved tremendously,” says ACHS music teacher and choir director Ginna Marsh. “Their hard work and dedication has paid off, which has allowed us more opportunities. I hope everyone can make it to the concert to hear the progress that they have made.”
The resurgence of the choir program has already had a positive impact on many students, including senior Wes Stone. “At the beginning of the year, I had no experience singing in front of people,” Stone explains. “If it wasn’t for Ms. Marsh taking me under her wing, I would have never unlocked my singing capabilities. I hope everyone can see the progress that we have made over the past year.”
In addition to Thursday’s performance, the middle and high school choirs will combine to participate in the “Music in the Parks: Kentucky Kingdom” competition this Saturday, May 13. The group will compete against choirs from Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee.
“It’s exciting to see how we’re growing and what the future might hold for Adair County’s choir program,” Marsh says.
