General McLane High School’s Spring Choral Concert will rebroadcast on WFSE-FM as part of a new partnership between the District and Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

Beginning this Sunday, June 14, the station will air a rebroadcast of General McLane High School’s annual spring chorale concert (from May 28) from 8:30-9:30 a.m. as part of its current programming schedule at 88.9 on the FM dial. The concert will air in the same timeslot every Sunday through August 23. This is part of Edinboro University’s renewed efforts to better serves residents throughout southern Erie County.

“Our community strongly values and supports the District’s music program, so this is a wonderful opportunity to expose residents to our high-quality performances. This particular concert was undoubtedly the finest performance of classic choral repertoire that I have every heard at General McLane, and it’s great to have the opportunity to showcase that over different mediums,” said Superintendent Richard Scaletta.

Adding District events to WFSE programming is part of the “Boro 24/7: Campus and Community Media Partnership” initiative, where Edinboro University’s student-run media organizations (ETV, WFSE and The Spectator weekly student newspaper) work collaboratively to push content to the common web portal, which features a live webstream of WFSE. The initiative has been supported by a grant of nearly $10,000 from the Erie County Gaming and Revenue Authority (ECGRA), and department faculty are pursuing other grant-funding opportunities as well.
