Over 300 people gathered at Alvirne High School on Wednesday, December 11, for the annual holiday concert.  The 90-minute concert featured performances by the “B Naturals,” “Nothin’ But Treble” choir and the “Alvirne Singers” choir, all of who were overjoyed to show progress of their rigorous programs.  Choral Director Elizabeth Beaton reflected on the event by saying, “The concert represents the ideals, we as a music department, communicate to students every day, those of sound pedagogy, discipline, work ethic, nurturing God-given talent and communication from the heart.

After just competing in the NH Jazz All State Honors Jazz Choir Competition held at Souhegan High School on October 26, high scores were achieved by Alvirne in every category.  Of the 64 singers chosen by the state AHS will be sending 14 of their own to compete in the NH All State Choir being held at Pinkerton’s Stockbridge Theater February 6-8.
