GM students join Erie Philharmonic for holiday concert

Posted on November 29, 2017, in Events, Performing Arts

General McLane High School students will join the Erie Philharmonic for their annual holiday concert, “Come Home for the Holidays”

Local tenor Daniel Cabanillas will star as vocal soloist alongside the Erie Philharmonic Chorus and General McLane Vocal Jazz Ensemble.

The show takes place December 2 and is conducted by Daniel Meyer. Show times are 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The Erie Philharmonic Chorus, now in its 65th season, is performing its first concert under new choir director Thomas Brooks. As a conductor and clinician, Mr. Brooks has performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

General McLane’s Vocal Jazz group joins the Philharmonic for the first time. The group boasts approximately 20 students and is designed for highly motivated vocalists from all high school grade levels that are looking for a more intensive, high-paced performing ensemble. This group has never participated in a concert with the Philharmonic, although they performed at the Warner Theatre with The Dave Stevens Band and guest artist Helen Welch in 2008.

Tickets are still available for the matinee and evening performances. To purchase tickets, please visit Eriephil.org/holidays or call 814-455-1375.
