Saline High School Choir sings selections for Board of Education Dec. 12, 2017
Saline High School Choir sang for the Board of Education Dec. 12, 2017, featuring selections from the performance they have planned for the Michigan Music Conference in January.

At the Dec. 12 meeting of the Saline Area Schools Board of Education, director Sarah Price and students from the Saline High School Choir Program gave the board a preview of the program they will present during the Michigan Music Conference held in January in Grand Rapids.

The MMC is the largest music educator’s conference of the year, attended not only by music teachers but also by select choirs, bands and orchestras. Music teachers come together for networking and educational sessions.

Choir teachers have to submit a recording of their students performing, and Saline's choir was one of only seven from around the state chosen to present at the conference.

The choir started off with "Yonder Come Day," a Georgia Seal Islands spiritual.



Showing their range, the choir next performed "Dieu! qu'il la fait bon regarder! (Lord, lovely hast thou made my dear!)", an excerpt from a longer master work by Debussy.



The choir ended with a holiday song, "The Carol of the Bells."
