Music teachers Janet Allison of Einstein and Syre and Leann Rozema of Lake Forest Park and Shorecrest direct the District Honor Choir. For this performance at Benaroya, Tam Osborne, former Shorecrest music teacher who now serves as the District's human resources director, will conduct the choir and symphony.

The concert also features the honor choir performing selections from "The Sound of Music." The Cascade Youth Symphony Orchestra will perform "Jupiter" from “The Planets and Shorewood and Einstein orchestra director Dan Wing will conduct the “Egmont Overture.”

The Edmonds School District H.C. did that a year ago with Everett Youth Symphony and it was a great experience for most of the kids.
