Just Like Glee, Only Better (With Videos)

It Was Gold Medals, Grand Champions, And A Really Good Time At The Daniel Hand High School Choral Concert Thursday Night Where We All Got To Bask In The Awesomeness That Was This Year

The Daniel Hand High School Spring Choral Concert Thursday night provided an opportunity for parents, siblings, friends, and the community to see the many awards garnered by the choirs this year and to hear some amazing music.

Just like Glee, only better, said Ron Soja about his students. Soja is the music teacher who has done so much and spent so much time working with the talented and dedicated students who make up the Show Choir, the Advanced Chorus, Waes Haeil, the Show Choir Band, and the Concert Choir. Also performing Thursday night was the impressive Intermediate Chorus directed by John Gage.

If you missed it, don't worry. We have some video for you, and will be adding more Friday and over the weekend. And Fox-61 News plans to do a segment that is scheduled to run at 10 p.m. Tuesday night, and another on Wednesday morning, Soja said.

As for the awards, get settled in, because it's a long list.
