Sarah Noble Chorus

sarah-nobleThe Silo is proud to present for your Holiday enjoyment, Sarah Noble Intermediate School Chorus with Ms. Gloria Capone, Director.

The Sarah Noble Intermediate School Chorus consists of three groups in grades 3 through 5 under the direction of director, Gloria Capone. There are over 200 enthusiastic singers in the combined choruses. Ms. Capone has been a General Music teacher and the Choral Director at Sarah Noble since 2007. Before becoming a teacher she had a long career in performing, primarily opera. This performance and singing background has given Ms. Capone a distinct advantage in building the choral program at Sarah Noble, whose reputation is strong and growing. Having worked with Skitch Henderson during her Opera career, this particular event at the Silo is very special to Ms. Capone, and has become a highlight of the year for her and her choruses.
