January 26, 2017 —CHELMSFORD HIGH SCHOOL
Chelmsford High School vocal ensemble “The Thursdays” will be participating in this year’s season of "Sing That Thing"- a vocal competition show on WGBH! “Sing that Thing” is local TV series showcasing New England's best amateur singing groups in a friendly competition that celebrates the diversity and joy of song making.
Twenty-four groups have been selected to compete in three competition categories: High School, College, and Adult. The singers will perform over eight episodes including a Semi-Final, featuring the top six groups (two from each category), culminating to a grand finale featuring the top group in each category. Locally based luminaries offer performance advice in one minute "Master Class" segments.
The series features three on-air coaches who will provide constructive feedback to the groups and determine which will move on to the finale: Larry Watson, an educator, lyricist, civil rights activist, and professor at Berklee College of Music; Annette Philip, a vocalist, composer/arranger, and faculty member at Berklee College of Music, winner of the 2014 National Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Championship with her quartet, Women of the World; and Jared Bowen, WGBH News Executive Arts Editor and host of Open Studio with Jared Bowen, Boston television's only local arts series.
The Thursdays will tape live in Boston on Feb 11, and tickets are available through the WGBH website. Congratulations to these students, and to Choral Director Ms. Roeder for her leadership and vision!
