Hey so my school, Timberline High School, is doing a dinner show that serves as a fundraiser for our choir program! Our Jr./Senior mixed choir is putting on a full performance of the Broadway musical “Beauty and the Beast” on February 23rd, 24th, and 25th.

On Thursday the 23rd there will be a showing of just the musical, without a dinner show, starting at 7:00 PM. On Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th all choirs will be performing in a dinner show with catering starting at 5:30 PM and at 7:00 on both of those nights the musical will begin.

Tickets for Thursday night cost $8 for Students, Senior citizens, and Faculty; while Adult tickets cost $14. The Friday night and Saturday night tickets for both the dinner show and performance are $14 for Students, Senior citizens, and Faculty; while the Adult tickets cost $24. If you have a large amount of people coming you can reserve a table for eight people for $200 which covers seating, dinner, and the show for eight people.

If you live in the area and are interested I highly recommend you coming and enjoying all of our choirs singing Disney and Jazz-themed songs and Encore’s show!

The One Direction member makes his first appearance on the primarily rock-driven airplay chart.

One Direction’s Harry Styles makes his first foray to Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart, as “Sign of the Times” debuts at No. 30 (on the list dated June 17).

The song debuts nine weeks after its maiden appearance on the Pop Songs airplay chart (April 22). “Sign” has since risen to No. 12, where it holds for a second week. (1D has never appeared on Adult Alternative Songs.)

Wait: Styles on a chart led by Portugal. The Man (“Feel It Still”) at No. 1, followed by at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, Dan Auerbach and The Lumineers?

It could seem odd to see a boy band member on a rock-centered chart. But given its sound, reminiscent of ‘70s prog rock, certain programmers are welcoming the song, including Emily McIntosh, program director of KGSR Austin, Texas, which spun the track 32 times in the latest tracking week (ending June 4), according to Nielsen Music.

“I’d be lying if I said there weren’t a few raised eyebrows, both inside and outside of KGSR, when we announced we were adding the record almost immediately,” she says. “But the word that permeated so many conversations about the track consistently was 'surprise.’ Harry surprised us all with a song that shook the conventional boy-band-member-goes-solo aesthetic. And often, that surprise turned to genuine delight.”

“Sign,” says McIntosh, is a “timeless ballad that deserves the attention of programmers and music fans worldwide, regardless of his history as a [pop] musician and performer.”

Other adult alternative stations playing the track high in rotation include KRVB Boise, Idaho (24 detections in the tracking week), KBCO Denver and WMMM Madison, Wis. (23 each). Overall, the song’s adult alternative spins for the week mark just 2 percent of its total, with the bulk driven by pop (63 percent) and adult pop stations (23 percent). - Billboard

Small town, big pride: Boise, Idaho

Boise, Id. — Residents of Boise, Idaho, will tell you there are many reasons to love their city: It’s tranquil and urbane, surrounded on all sides by an endless supply of spectacular nature. Its nickname is Tree City, and the word “Boise” itself most likely derives from the French for “woods,” fitting for its quiet, bucolic charm and beautiful old-growth trees. The city is neighborly, full of convivial bars, restaurants, cafes, shops and many neighborhoods where it’s common for residents to rarely lock their doors.

In some ways, the annual Boise Pride celebration reflects that promise of an idyllic lifestyle. At Pridefest, I met one particularly inspiring group of high schoolers, none of whom identified in exactly the same way, from straight to queer and otherwise: the intelligent and empowered Freya; Nola, a sharp athlete who hopes to become a physical therapist; Sarah, a pleasant transplant from upstate New York; Daphne, a jokester with Puerto Rican roots; and thoughtful, artistic, pink-haired Cody. A few of them met for the first time at Pride, where they quickly became friends. Their anti-clique mindset and already expansive identities demonstrate a hopeful openness that bodes well for Boise’s future. Read more (6/30/17)
