Not only have the lineups for all the upcoming music festivals been slowly announced all over America, but YLHS also has its very own concert coming up in February!

According to Marissa Stinnett (12),

“Our Seasons of Love Concert is on February 10th at 7p.m. in the Forum. In addition to the choir’s performance, you will find that the main focus of this show is to also spotlight the wondrous voices that make up our ensembles through solos, duets, trios, etc. It is definitely a unique experience for you to get to hear all different kinds of music– from vocal jazz to a Capella pop to original pieces.”

And on that note, look out for this year’s music festivals and come out to the show on February 10th to show support for your Mustang singers!
