Tim, a singer in the OHS Concert Choir and the ASE Chorale brought his instrument to ASE Chorale rehearsal on a recent Wednesday. He has been known to play a “little” and wanted to show off his technique before class. Thank you Tim for this “small” demonstration. By the way, Tim is looking for a bridge for this petite instrument.
The Orono High School Concert Choir provided some festive cheer for the traditional Christmas Tree-Lighting held downtown Orono on Monday, December 2. Santa Claus made a “surprise” visit to Orono and even agreed to having his picture taken with one of our very own Concert Choir members.
After singing downtown, Concert Choir members caroled across the bridge and up to the University Inn Academic Suites where at the request of Santa, the big fir tree was lit. It was a great start to the holidays here in our town.
