MHS Mixed Chorus to Perform with the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra

The following information was originally posted in the February 11th Eblast from Superintendent Gormley.  

From Dr. Noreen Diamond Burdett, our Director of Fine & Applied Arts:
The Milton HS Mixed Chorus is singing with the choruses from Hingham HS, Scituate HS, and Braintree HS and will be performing with the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra.  We are performing the entire Mozart Requiem (80 pages of music!)
We have had our first joint rehearsal with the other choruses – the first rehearsal was at Scituate HS. Then we will rehearse in February at Braintree High; in March at Hingham High, and in April at Milton High.  The concert will be at Sanders Theatre (part of Harvard University) on Tuesday, April 9th.
This is the first time in over 25 years that we have done a combined performance of this magnitude!  It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the students.
