On Monday March, 14th Slinger High School choirs will be singing at St. Peter’s Church for their annual concert within this venue. It will begin at 7:30 pm. The theme for this concert is “Reflections on Peace,” and all of the songs chosen have peaceful meanings or underlying messages of peace.

This will be the first concert for the choirs since the referendum passed which allowed for the construction of an auditorium as a part of the School District of Slinger’s upcoming renovations. The Slinger choral program views this concert--held in a valued community building with excellent acoustics--as a way of thanking the community for their support of Slinger’s music programs. Choral director, Mrs. Peters, said of the upcoming concert, “This year's annual SHS Choral Concert at St. Peter's Church is the perfect opportunity to say thank you to a community that supports and embraces both education and the arts.” She went on to say, “What a wonderful blessing it is to live here in Slinger - to teach here, to raise my children here, to send them to our schools.  Our students feel that, too.  They feel the support that our community offers.  They know that what we have here in Slinger is authentic and good.  And what's more, they have the desire to give back, to show their gratitude. All of us who are a part of Slinger Choirs can think of no better way to do that than to sing from our hearts, from our souls, music that matters.”

While much of this “music that matters” is inspired by sources as old as the Bible, the songs that Slinger Choirs have been rehearsing diligently still apply to the lives of people in the modern world. The idea for the theme “Reflections on Peace” was inspired by the attacks on Paris this November, as well as the many violent events that occur every day. With songs of hope, Slinger choirs wish to bring a little extra peace to the lives of the community members who have helped to support them so much. Mrs. Peters and the Slinger Choirs are eager to share the hard work they have done this winter with everyone. “We hope you'll join us Monday evening to be a part of this great concert tradition,” Mrs. Peters said.
