Springfield Area Educational Foundation Announces
PHILADELPHIA BOYS CHOIR Event Coming to Springfield!
Remember When? – A Last Chance to See SHS Auditorium
Concert to Honor SHS Legendary Choir Director Allen J. Brennan
September 1, 2019 – Springfield, PA – The Springfield Area Educational Foundation (SAEF) hosts its 6th annual signature fundraising event on November 24, 2019 at 3:00 pm, featuring the Philadelphia Boys Choir in the Springfield High School Auditorium.
The event will bring together the world renowned Philadelphia Boys Choir and the Springfield High School & Middle School Select Choirs singing popular songs of the season.
"This is the sixth year we are bringing together our SHS singers on our stage with the Philadelphia Boys Choir, " says Stephen Todaro (SHS '78), President of the Springfield Area Educational Foundation. "We are offering Springfield School District supporters and community friends a great opportunity to experience a full length concert from the Philadelphia Boys Choir and watch the thrill of our local students performing a song with one of the best performance groups in the world. This is an invaluable gift to our students. Additionally, for our alumni, it is the realization this may be a last opportunity to be seated in our SHS auditorium, as our new high school is scheduled for opening next year."
Citing SAEF's commitment to enhancing the public education of Springfield District students, PBC Event Chairman Sue Descano added "this year's performance will honor SHS legendary choir director Mr. Allen Brennan with proceeds to benefit the music education department." An active parishioner at St. Kevin's in Springfield, Brennan taught vocal music for SSD for over thirty years directing choirs at both E.T. Richardson Middle School and SHS.
Photo opportunities will also be available with Santa Claus for the children, before and during intermission. Go to https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/SAEF - or call 610-938-6034 for details. Key sponsorships for the event are still available. Tickets are on sale now.
