JHHS Spring Choral Concert: Monday, April 20, 2015
This year's theme is "Dancing With Disney" and includes medleys from "Beauty and the Beast", "The Princess and the Frog" and "Frozen". Since our theme is so "kid friendly" all of Winchester is invited to our Spring Concert performance with some fun additions. We would like to invite kids to come dressed as their favorite Disney character. Then at the end of the program the kids would be invited to stay and take pictures with the characters. We will have Belle, Gaston, the Beast, Mamma Odie, Olaf, and Elsa. The concert is FREE to the public. Please come join us for a fun (and short) evening of Disney music!
