What great performances by our Bands, Orchestras, and Chorus Thursday evening & Friday morning! Under the Direction of Ms. Bassett with Mrs. Ensley accompanying the instrumentals sounded strong, smooth, and tight! And with Ms. Hope directing the Chorus they sounded beautiful!  Thank you also to Sr. Genevieve, Mr. Hoersten, and our Maintenance Team for helping plan and support the performances. Great work all!
