FLOSSMOOR | Homewood-Flossmoor High School invites the public to its annual Red & White Choir Concert, set for 8 p.m. Tuesday in the school's Mall Auditorium, 999 Kedzie Ave.
At this annual event, two choirs compete under the direction of student conductors. This year's Red Choir will be led by seniors Kayla Griffith and Anna Schloen. The White Choir will be led by senior Amaris Smith and junior Anthony Swiatnicki.
Each choir will perform two required songs, then four selections of their conductors' choosing. The night will end with songs by the combined choir, an awards ceremony, induction of next year's Viking Choir members and the announcement of the night's winning choir. Originally created by Walter Rodby, the school’s first choral conductor, this concert has been an annual tradition at H-F since 1964. Admission is free and open to the public.
On Thursday, the school will offer its annual Orchestra Senior Conductors Concert — the final concert of the school year — at 7 p.m. in the Mall Auditorium.
At this free event, each of the school’s senior music students will conduct the song of his or her choice.
