  There will also be a set of music dedicated to our veterans, which will include a Patriotic Medley and “The Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy.”

Both choirs are under the direction of Karen Dale, associate professor of music. According to Ms. Dale, “The students are excited about sharing their music with family, friends and the community.  The concert is free, and we hope that everyone will come and help us celebrate the conclusion of a successful semester of study.”
