Three Pottsgrove Vocalists to Ring in Holiday Season

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottsgrove School District.

Three Pottsgrove High School choral students have been selected to perform their version of "God  Bless America." 

Sarah Ounsworth, Chloe Tice and Rae Schon will be singing God Bless America, at the American Heritage Credit Union Grand Illumination Tree Lighting and Fireworks Symphony on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. 

The annual program attracts thousands of spectators to American Heritages main campus on Red Lion Road in Philadelphia.

According to the students choral instructor, Ms. Kelsey Hendler, “the girls, who call themselves the "Soprani Squad" arranged their own music and prepared themselves for the audition. They competed against other acts and won the most votes to be selected for the performance. They are thrilled to be given the opportunity, and I couldn't be more proud of them!!”

Spectators will also enjoy the sounds of the Philadelphia Boys Choir and The Fife and Drum Corps of the Old Barracks. 

The evening celebration ends with Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross counting down the lighting of their 40-foot Christmas tree and a spectacular firework show to ring in the holiday season. The firework show is set to the theme music of the HBO series, John Adams.
