Experience of Senior Class – Including His Daughter, Emma

Greenwich High School’s Combined Choirs will celebrate the end of the school year with a very special concert on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, at the First Presbyterian Church, 1101 Bedford Street, Stamford, Conn., at 8:00 p.m.  Emmy-winning and Grammy-nominated musician (and GHS parent) Rob Mathes has written a song cycle entitled “Far From Here,” that celebrates this year’s senior class and captures the unique mix of excitement and uncertainty that defines this landmark moment in their lives.

Tickets for the concert are $20 for general admission and $10 for students, and are available at the door or from participating students. Mathes, a 1981 GHS graduate, has long discussed the idea of a commission with Patrick Taylor, the GHS director of choirs and program associate for music. Emma’s upcoming graduation, he said, “represented the perfect opportunity to make it happen.”
