OSWEGO – The Charles E. Riley Elementary School Choruses will present a Spring Choral Concert on May 19 at 7 p.m. in the Ralph M. Faust Theatre for the Performing Arts at Oswego High School.
Please note that the District School Calendar has the event scheduled for May 20, which is incorrect.
The third grade beginner’s chorus and the fourth, fifth and sixth graders’ concert chorus will be performing under the direction of Diane Taverni, and accompanied on the piano by Dr. Juan LaManna of the SUNY Oswego Music Department.
Taverni, who has been teaching music and directing choruses at Riley since 1989, will be retiring at the end of this school year.
Prior to her years at Riley, she taught classroom and choral music at the Pulaski Junior – Senior High School, North Rose-Wolcott Schools and St. Paul’s Elementary School known today as Trinity Catholic School.
This concert will include two- and three-part choral arrangements of Traditional Spirituals, American Folk, Novelty, Broadway and Pop songs and is free to the public.
