Glenelg Class of '94 to have chemical-free cruise

NEIGHBORS

May 12, 1994|By SALLY BUCKLER

Celebrating graduation with a chemical-free cruise is a tradition at Glenelg High School. The class of 1994 will join for a last get-together as they cruise Baltimore's Inner Harbor on the Bay Lady after graduation May 31.

This is an expensive occasion, but folks in our area have made contributions so organizers Cris Farley and Cynnie Hood can sell tickets to graduates at a reduced price. Their goal is to make the cruise affordable to all.

If you'd like to make a contribution, send it to GHS, in care of Cris Farley, 14025 Burnt Woods Road, Glenelg 21737.

The prom, the senior sports assembly, a class picnic, graduation rehearsals, class night, an awards assembly and finally graduation and the cruise fill the calendars of the Glenelg High School Class of 1994.

Class night, May 27, for seniors will be a memory maker, with dinner and a dance at Turf Valley, and a chance to share goals and memories.

The awards assembly at the school at 8:30 a.m. May 27 will extol the deeds of this gifted class. Parents and friends may attend this event to see many members of the junior and senior classes rewarded for their excellence.

Virginia Beach was the site for the recent North American Music Festival attended by the Glenelg High School choral groups under the direction of Nancy Buckle.

The combined scores of the five competing groups from Glenelg won the school the Festival's Choral Sweepstakes award. That means that the choral groups from Glenelg were best overall, in any division.

In Division AA, the mixed choir and women's choir both received first place, with a superior rating, the highest possible. The madrigals and jazz choir both competed in open class. Both received a superior rating.

The madrigals received a first place, and the jazz choir received a trophy, since there was insufficient competition for places. The men's choir received a trophy and an excellent rating.

The choral music department at Glenelg played host to the Howard County Choral Adjudication recently. Groups from all Howard County High Schools were at the adjudication, a comments-only judging.

Glenelg's mixed choir received rave reviews from the judges, as the madrigals were expected to do last Tuesday in the Howard County Madrigal Festival.

If you'd like to hear Glenelg High School's wonderful choir and madrigals, and the fabulous Glenelg Symphonic Band and Jazz Band, plan to attend the Glenelg Spring Music Concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday . Obtain $4 tickets from students in the bands or choirs or at the door. Call 313-5533.
