Choral music is alive and well in our schools and the Ashe County Choral Festival will showcase the talent of our young people. The Ashe County Arts Council and the Ashe County Schools are pleased to sponsor a Ashe County Choral Festival holiday concert on Thursday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Ashe County High School.
The concert will feature an evening of individual choruses and massed choir selections. The participating schools are Blue Ridge Elementary under the direction of Polly Bradley, Mountain View Elementary under the direction of Vanessa Van Valin, Westwood Elementary under the direction of Mazie Sullivan and Ashe Middle School under the direction of Melodie Salley.
The selections will range from classical holiday music to holiday music from around the world. The selections include the massed song: “Snow Day” by Jay Althouse. Individual chorus selections include: “A Perfect Winter Day,” “Can You Hear the Angels Sing?,” “Silent Night” and “Do you Wanna Build a Snowman?”
Funding for the Festival is made possible with a Grassroots Projects Pool Grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency, and corporate support by Lifestore Band and Insurance and is sponsored locally by the Ashe County Arts Council.
