Cranford High School Opening Gala Concert

The Cranford High School Performing Arts Department will present its annual Opening Gala Concert on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and opened to the public.
The concert has become a back-to-school tradition in Cranford and provides parents and the community a first look at the performing groups for the coming year. The concert features first performances from the CHS Concert Choir, Madrigal Choir, and newly formed co-ed a cappella ensemble, as well as the CHS Performing Arts Academy Dancers and Actors, the CHS Jazz Band and Cougar Marching Band. The CHS spring musical production will also be announced. “Over the years, parents and community members have said this is one of their favorite concerts of the year, because they get a little taste of everything we do,” said Anthony Rafaniello, the new Supervisor of Fine & Performing Arts for Cranford Public Schools.
