Portland School’s Music Program Has Got Talent

October 18, 2019

Portland Public School’s Fall Music Program is scheduled for Tuesday night, October 22, at 7:00 PM at the High School Auditorium. It will feature the Middle School and High School Choirs and Bands, including the Raiders Marching Band. It will also feature a very special piano performance by Portland Sophomore Mya Collins and a rollicking Jazz/Funk number by the student organized “Tough Luck” band.


The Beacon was treated to a preview last night and it was awesome! The concert is free and open to the public. It’s a great opportunity to support these very talented young musicians from our community. Portland Schools Band/Choir Director Mike Sulecki has graciously provided a copy of the Concert Agenda for the Night. Doors open at 6:30.
