Music students offer concerts
JUNEAU - The Juneau-Douglas High School music programs will offer two concerts this week.
On Tuesday, the JDHS choirs and orchestras will perform at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Orchestra teacher Julia Bastuscheck said one highlight will be a performance of Schubert's Mass in G that combines the chamber orchestra and the concert choir.
The JDHS bands will take the auditorium stage at 7 p.m. Thursday. Band teacher Ken Guiher said the performance will include a variety of works, including pieces being prepared for this spring's Southeast Alaska Music Festival.
Admission to both shows is free, but donations are appreciated.
