Briefly Noted: Student Groups Feature Holiday Music

Category: Announcements || By Submitted Report

The McKeesport Area High School Orchestra is among the groups invited to perform at the Allegheny County Courthouse during the holidays, a spokeswoman announced.

The group will perform 11:30 a.m to 12:10 p.m. Dec. 14 on the courthouse's Grand Staircase.

Other Mon-Yough student organizations scheduled to perform this holiday season include the Steel Valley High School Concert Choir from 11:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. Dec. 11, and the chorus from Pittsburgh Mifflin Elementary School in Lincoln Place from 12:20 to 1 p.m. the same day.

The county's 45th Annual Holiday Choral Program begins Wednesday with a performance by the Quaker Valley High School Concert Choir at 11:30 a.m.

Performances will be held each weekday through Dec. 19. Twenty-four local choirs, orchestras and bands will participate in this year's program. Each performance will also be broadcast on the Grant Street side of the courthouse so shoppers and office workers may enjoy the music.

Giant Eagle and Colteryahn Dairy are providing refreshments for the school groups on their performance days.

Participating schools have also been asked to make donations of filled stockings to The Holiday Project, a program that has provided holiday gifts to children and youth who receive services through the Allegheny County human services system since the late 1960s. Concertgoers are invited to participate in the program by making a donation of an unwrapped gift.

More information about The Holiday Project, including suggested gifts, is available on the county's website.
