Cedar Cliff High School Chamber Singers
The Cedar Cliff Chamber Singers were invited to perform at the PMEA All-State Music Convention! Featured as one of only four high school choral groups performing at the conference, the Cedar Cliff Chamber Singers were selected from amongst 90 applicants across the state. It is a significant honor to be accepted, and the students will be performing for an audience of music educators from around the state on April 21 at 11:30 am at the Kalahari Convention Center. The Chamber Singers will present their 25-minute PMEA ALL-State program, Music of the Cosmos, to their home audience on Sunday, April 16 at 7:30 pm at Pine Street Presbyterian Church in Harrisburg. The concert is free, and the general public is encouraged to attend this special event. Parking will be available in the South Street Garage, and street parking is free on Sunday evenings. Come hear the beautiful sounds of the stars and cheer on your local HS choir before they go to perform at the all-state convention.
