Vocal students at Chillicothe middle school and high school, under the direction of vocal music instructor Gail Shriver, presented their spring program Tuesday evening at Gary Dickinson Performing Arts Center. The program opened with the Sopaltenobas, which is the middle school’s show choir (a combination of soprano, alto, tenor and bass). The Sopaltenobas were followed by the sixth grade choir, which combined with the Brunswick, Conn., Middle School Choir via video. Chillicothe’s 6th grade choir did a technology/choir project with the Connecticut school this semester, Shriver said. She had contacted the teacher at the school, which is a private all-boys middle school, and they began working on the same music. The students were digital pen pals and they also did live video rehearsing together. At Tuesday’s concert, the Chillicothe choir sang with the Connecticut school choir, via a video displayed on a large screen. The sixth, seventh and eight grades combined for a musical number then just the seventh and eighth-grade choirs performed. The program continued with the  high school’s Concert Chorale, CHS Select, Women’s Choir, Tenor-Bass Choir, the Choraliers (shown above), and the Senior Choraliers. A special number was performed by the senior Choralier members and the high school choirs then combined to present a farewell tribute to the graduating seniors.
