ZHS Choir Students to Visit Broadway

by Emily Baird on December 7, 2009

The Zanesville High School choirs are preparing for an array of musical entertainment tomorrow night.

It’s the annual holiday concert, which will be held in the auditorium at 7:30 p.m.

Yet, about 40 of those students and their choir director are beginning to anticipate a trip to New York City in March.

"I think for students who may want to go into some aspect of performing, that’s the place to go, " says Choir Director, Judy Fowls.

Planning for the trip is already underway.

"We want to see Ground Zero. I want them to see why we live in such a wonderful country because of things that they will see there. Ground Zero…We’ll see the Empire State building. We’re going to get to see the musical Wicked. We just have a lot of things planned, " says Fowls.

To help with funding of the trip, the Zanesville High School choirs will be holding two important fundraisers. There will be a cookie sale at the holiday concert tomorrow night.

There will also be a recycling fundraiser this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Roosevelt Middle School. People are asked to drop off items ranging from old computers and electronics to jewlery.
