On Thursday, March 7, 2019, the Spanish Fork Junior High had their yearly Festival Choir Concert. The concert was titled "Through The Ages", and pieces were sung from many different time periods. The performers sang songs from many famous composers, from Ralph Vaughn Williams to Thomas Tallis to Mozart. There was a great turnout of family and friends coming to support the choir and enjoy the music. Each of the choirs (Beginning, Concert, Bel Canto, and Chamber), sang a few songs that they had been learning, practicing, and memorizing this term.
