There's music in the air. The Glenelg High School choral department will showcase its talents at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the annual Pops Concert in the school auditorium.

Under the direction of Nancy Buckle, the chorus, madrigals, and the men's and women's barbershop groups will enchant you with their songs. Some student singers will perform solos and duets.

This is music you love to hear, like "A Whole New World" from the new movie "Aladdin" and "Be Our Guest" from "Beauty and the Beast." You'll hear old standards and new ones. Grab the kids and go to this well-prepared family concert. Purchase tickets for $5 from any choir member or at the door.

Parents of students who participate in Glenelg's choral department are starting a parent support group for the program. The group's first meeting is at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the school.

The group's objective is to support school choral activities with fund-raising, publicity, and student performances. Parents will help with sales of tickets and printed programs for concerts and will help run the fun-filled annual choral awards banquet.

In April, student singers are going to Myrtle Beach, S.C., to compete in a music festival. They'll sing at the county adjudication, a professional judging of their skills after the Myrtle Beach trip.

To pay for some of this year's activities, the students will be selling Joe Corbi do-it-yourself pizza kits in March. If you're a pizza fan, contact a member of the Glenelg High School Chorus and place your order.

"Learning is fun here," says Javier Romero, a visitor to Glenelg Country School from Costa Rica. Schools in Costa Rica are open from February through November, so during his vacation, Javier, who is 13, decided to attend a school in the United States for two weeks.

He arrived at Glenelg Country School Jan. 25 and will return home this weekend.

He says he chose Glenelg Country for its relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of students and teachers.

He is particularly impressed with the small classes at Glenelg Country, which sometimes have only five or six students. In Costa Rica, he is used to classes of 40 students.

Faculty members at GCS describe Javier as articulate, friendly and self-assured. They say he has blended in at the school easily. His visit is a prelude to International Week at the school later this month.

If you want to know more about the Glenelg Country School, call the admissions office at 531-2229.
