The Newcomerstown Middle School sixth and seventh grade choirs, under the direction of Andrew Hall, performed at the Coshocton Dogwood Festival. Both groups sang alongside the Ridgewood fourth through sixth grade choirs in a collaborative performance of two pieces, "Shine On Me" by Rollo Dilworth and "I Ask for One Day" by Jim Papoulis, as well as performing pieces as separate ensembles. School officials said the crowd was "very pleased to see so many enthusiastic young singers making meaningful music. The Newcomerstown Middle School students represented Newcomerstown well and will hopefully be invited back to sing as next year's festival."
