On Friday, February 7, the Colchester High School music program is holding its annual Spaghetti Soiree—a night of dinner and music provided by CHS choral and instrumental groups—in the CHS cafeteria. Online bidding is also now open in a silent auction featuring dozens of items donated by area merchants to help raise money for the group’s upcoming trip to New York City (please click here to read more about the trip). (For a complete listing of items to bid on, please visit the Friends of Colchester Music website.)
There will be seatings for the spaghetti dinner at 5:00 p.m. and at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for either seating are available for $12 each (for those 13 and over) and $8 each for children age 3 to 12.

Please specify which seating time you prefer. Because of the popularity of this event, pre-ordering of tickets is encouraged. However, tickets can also be purchased at the door if there are remaining seats.
Union Memorial School will perform the musical Too Much Noise! An Eastern European Folktale, retold with original music by Brian Hiller and Don Dupont, on February 12 and 13 in the community theater at Colchester High School. The performance is a culmination of several weeks of learning for the students that includes reading the script as well as learning songs, speaking parts, and dances.
Half of the students will perform on Wednesday, February 12, and the other half will perform on Thursday, February 13. Both performances start at 6:30 p.m. and will last approximately thirty minutes.
“Musicals provide a great opportunity for the children to learn and explore on so many levels,” said Martie Mutz, CSD music teacher at Union Memorial School and Porters Point School. “There will be speaking and dancing parts, and every child will be a part of the chorus … for many of our children, this is their first time on a real stage.” For more information about the UMS production of Too Much Noise!, please click here.
