Lemont High School’s choirs will join with choirs from Old Quarry Middle School and River Valley Elementary School for a Spring Choral Concert on Wednesday, April 18. The event begins at 7 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. All community members are invited to attend this free musical event.

The high school’s choir and those from Old Quarry and River Valley all will be performing, as will the high school’s A Cappella Choir. The high school choirs both are under the direction of Stephanie Cesaroni, the Old Quarry choir is headed up by Micah Brandhandler, and River Valley’s choir is directed by Allyson Zeglen and Jenna Treanor.

The A Cappella group will entertain with “The Longest Time” by Billy Joel, “Since You’ve Been Gone” by Anders Edenroth and Emma Nilsdotter, and “Run To You” arranged by Kirby Shaw.

Several students who received “1” rankings at the IHSA Solo & Ensemble Sectional in March will perform their competition pieces. Senior Caitlin Canto will perform “What’s the Use of Wond’rin” from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel; senior Lauren Pengiel will perform Meredith Willson’s “Goodnight My Someone” from The Music Man; junior Maria Purpura will perform Noel Gay’s “Once You Lose Your Heart” from Me & My Girl; and sophomore Gabrielle Salomon will perform Arthur Sullivan’s “Love is a Plaintive Song” from Patience.

Old Quarry’s choir will perform “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” arranged by Audrey Snyder and “There is Peace” by Jim Papoulis, while River Valley will feature “Oye” by Jim Papoulis, Jean Ritchie’s “What a Goodly Thing,” and “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman.
