Lifting their voices

Posted on 09-16-2011

By Kevin Mertz, Standard Journal Staff writer

MILTON - Music was in the air Thursday night as 80 adults and 20 youth lifted their voices in song during the Milton Harvest Festival POPS Concert, held at the Milton Area High School.

Ruth Chrismer, concert coordinator, said the adults have been practicing for the concert two times per week since July 25. Youth have been rehearsing once a week since early August.

"People have rarely missed rehearsals," Chrismer said.

She noted that participants love the music involved in this year's concert, particularly a piece that was specially commissioned for the event.

The song was commissioned from a poem, "To Honor Heroes," written by Sharon Craig, of Milton.

Dr. William Cutter, of Boston, a former Warrior Run School District choir director, created the music to go with the piece.

"(Tuesday during rehearsal) was the first time I heard the commissioned piece performed," Craig said earlier this week while preparing for the concert. "It's really beautiful. It was interesting for me to hear what parts of my poem Bill Cutter chose to emphasize in his composition."
