The Broadalbin-Perth music department will host “A Prism for Portia” concert starting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 7, at the Robert C. Munn Gymnasium at B-P Jr./Sr. High School. The concert will feature all of the district’s band and chorus ensembles, with students in grades 5-12 performing. The theme of the concert is “Broadway,” and audience members will enjoy music from “Grease,” “Mamma Mia,” “Annie,” “Aladdin,” “Hamilton,” “High School Musical,” and more. 


Concert-goers will also have the opportunity to play online trivia between performances using their cell phones for an additional fee.
