The public is invited to a free Topper Choral Concert. The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10 at Duane Smith Auditorium. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and holiday treats will be available for sale.
The Topper Choral consists of all the Los Alamos High School and Los Alamos Middle School choir classes.
More than 50 student performers competed and qualified for District Honor Choirs and were challenged to an intensive multi-day training and a superb performance in October with elite music directors. Twenty of the students are headed to New York City in March 2014 for several days of master choral classes and a performance at the renowned Lincoln Center.
This year’s final 2013 Winter Concert presents five outstanding choirs including the Middle School Choir, Topper Chorale, Harmony, Encore and Bel Canto.
The Winter Concert is under the direction of Jason Rutledge and features musical guests Zane Meek on trombone and Ryan Finn on piano.
