Rachelle Buckley '10 performs with the Concert Choir at South Hadley High School. "I've really enjoyed being the choir," says Rachelle. "You get to sing in front of people you normally don't talk to. Also, the music department is like your family; they don't judge you and they are kind people. When you need help, you can go to any person there and they will help you out." Rachelle plans to attend college in the fall to study elementary education.


Audra Yelin '10 is a member of the Concert Choir and Show Choir. Outside of the music department, her favorite class is Clay and Sculpture. After graduation, Audra plans to attend Holyoke Community College and says the thing she'll miss most about being in the South Hadley High School Music Department is "all the chaos."



Many thanks to Gerry's Music Shop for hosting the first annual Guitar Toss on May 8. 
Many attempted a toss, but only one winner walked away with the grand prize of a new electric guitar from Gerry's! All proceeds - over $500 - benefited the music programs at SHHS!
