EL Students Attend Boyschoir Festival
Lackawanna Trail High School was the site of the second annual Boyschoir Festival held Wednesday, November 7. One hundred and sixty boys joined voices on the auditorium stage to make music together under the direction of guest conductor, Mr. Stephen Fisher, co-founder of the Commonwealth Youthchoirs of Philadelphia.
Ten students from Elk Lake Elementary School attended the festival. Sixth graders Joel Kline, Christian Sprout, Mark Zayleski sang Soprano II. Robert Ralston and Shane Kelder, fifth grade, sang Soprano I. Fourth graders Seth Tewksbury, Conner Atherholt, Ty Moon, Travis Birchard, and Bailey Tyler were also on the Soprano II part.
The students prepared the music at their home schools, and after a full day of rehearsal at Lackawanna Trail, performed in concert to a full house of family and friends. To hear that many boys sing harmony from the stage at one time is truly an awesome experience.
The fourth grade students are directed by Miss Jennifer Geary, and the fifth and sixth grade students are under the direction of Mrs. Barbara Holbert.
