Hatboro-Horsham High School Hosts Feb. 8 PMEA District 11 Chorus Festival Community Concert
The 7:30 p.m. show will be preceded by a Feb. 7 performance by The Deltones.
HORSHAM — Hatboro-Horsham High School will welcome more than 170 students from across Bucks and Montgomery counties who are performing in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District 11 Chorus Festival. Students will sing for the community during a concert held in the Hatboro-Horsham High School auditorium — 899 Horsham Road in Horsham — at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8.
Under the direction of Dr. Paul Rardin of the Boyer College of Music and Dance at Temple University, students will perform classical, contemporary, spiritual and other pieces for the audience members.
The PMEA District 11 Chorus Festival is a three-day event that students from across the region audition to take part in. Of the students participating in the Feb. 6 through 8 festival, 80 will be chosen to move forward to the PMEA regional competition.
In addition to Friday’s concert, The Deltones, an a cappella group from the University of Delaware, will give a community concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7. The troupe appeared on the hit NBC show "The Sing Off" last season. There will be a freewill donation at the door to benefit the group.
Tickets for Friday’s performance are $8 and will be available at the door.
“It is honor to have students from across Montgomery and Bucks counties performing in the PMEA District 11 Chorus Festival right here in our district,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Curtis Griffin said. “This event truly exemplifies the hard work and dedication put forth by area students every day and the importance they place in music.”
