IU9 ChorusFest at Bradford High

Bradford Area High School will be hosting the IU9 Elementary ChorusFest at 7 p.m. Thursday.

This choir includes 114 5th and 6th grade students from around the Intermediate Unit stretching from Northern Potter to St. Marys. The students rehearse many hours during the day to culminate in a spectacular evening performance.

The host director and guest conductor for the day are Andrew Dutko, choral teacher at Fretz Middle School, and Gina Lupini. Lupini is a teacher at Valley View School District, the recipient of many awards for her choirs and holds an MA in Choral Conducting Mansfield University.

The Fretz Middle School Show Choir will open the concert with tunes like "Drive My Car" and "One Moment in Time," and the 114-member choir will perform pieces like "I've Got the World on a String" and "Old Dan Tucker." Tickets for the event are $3 for adults and $2 for students.
