"Glee" just finished and I sit here at my laptop, torn about what to say. I was affected, personally, when Cory Monteith passed away the day before my 28th birthday this past summer. I ' v e been a devout fan of "Glee" since its incredible version of  “ D on ' t  Sto p Believing” ... and believe, I did. "Glee" is a show that will embrace the campy aspects of show choirs and glee clubs, but by embracing, they've created a resurgence of the arts in our public school system.

No, you're not crazy. This week is the "Glee" Thanksgiving episode...because actually showing it on Thanksgiving would make too much sense, right, Ryan Murphy? Anywho, this week is more of a homecoming as well for the New Directions alums. The old crew sings "Home" by Phillips Phillips. Confession: I did not know who Phillips Phillips was until I had to google that song. Does anyone even watch "American Idol" anymore, really? I'm all for sentimental homecomings, especially of the high school variety.

If you walk down the halls of Chesapeake Senior High School, you can hear strains of Hebrew and Norwegian mixing with the clatter of lunch trays and the pounding of typewriters.The international dialects aren't coming from foreign language laboratories, however, but from the choral music room, where Karen Rhodes and 50 members of the school's show choir practice every day, singing "Erev Shel Shoshanim" and "Pal Pa Haugen."The choir, one of five in the school's choral music program, is preparing the Israeli and Norwegian folk tales for the county choir festival today.

WHEN A professional musical ensemble prepares for a concert, part of getting ready is assembling the souvenirs sold at the show - including its recordings. So why should middle-schoolers be any different? When the children in sixth, seventh and eighth grades at Severna Park Middle School took the stage last week for their much-anticipated holiday concert, they had a compact disc of the program's numbers on sale as an audience keepsake. Recording the CD was a learning experience that the school's music teacher and choral director, Kerryanne Kennedy, thought would help make the children better musicians.
