Franklin High School is pleased to invite you to celebrate over 200 student musicians as they perform their annual Winter Concert. This year, we will be presenting our concert over two nights. 

On Wednesday, December 4, the String Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra will perform Fanfare for the Common Man by Copland and Finlandia by Sibelius. The Combined Chorus, Chamber Chorus, and Treble Chorus, with pianist Cate Gallagher, will present works by local RI composer, Michael C. Kregler (“Babylon’s Fallin’” and “I carry your heart with me”), “Famine Song” by VIDA, “Duet of the Flowers” from the opera Lakmé, “Pure Imagination” from the classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory , and more!

On Tuesday, Dec. 10 the FHS Concert Band and Wind Ensemble will present a concert featuring the music of Robert W. Smith, including “The Divine Comedy - The Inferno, Purgatorio, The Ascension, Paradiso” and “Inchon & Encanto” plus Andrew Boysen Jr's “By My Side”. Together, the Wind Ensemble and the Concert Band will close the concert with two selections including “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson.

NEW THIS YEAR! Through the generosity of the Franklin Cultural Council, Regency Transportation and the support through the Franklin Music Boosters, we are thrilled to perform for the first time in our new formal concert attire. Thank you and see you there!

Both concerts will take place at 7:00 PM in the Franklin High School auditorium. A $5 donation is requested at the door.
