"Don't Stop Believing" Vaudeville 2013

VAUDEVILLE 2013 was a huge success!

There were performances from the Stage Band, the Vaudeville Chorus (backed up by the House Band), and many soloists, both vocal and instrumental!

Here is the Vaudeville Chorus and House Band, who rocked it on Journey's "Don't Stop Believing"!

And just for fun, here is the rehearsal, with many goofy face shots, including one from Mr. Mullen after we missed the second chorus!!

Select Chorus Party!

On Wednesday, June 5th, the SELECT CHORUS celebrated a successful year of assemblies, concerts, and festivals with an afternoon pizza party!  We stuffed ourselves to the gills with pizza and soda.  We even had some cake to celebrate one of our fallen comrades, Dillon Banks, who will be leaving us this year for the greater pastures of Cape Cod.  Good luck, Dillon!

Congratulations on a great year, gang!
