About the W. H. Oliver Middle School Choir
Their director, Franklin Willis is excited about teaching choral music for the second year at Oliver Middle School. It is astounding to see the growth of this choir from last year to the present. It is difficult to believe that a little over one year ago these students were placed in a chorus without any prior musical background or desire to sing. The chorus was one of the few groups that had not been formed, thus leaving little children left to join. Mr. Willis allowed anyone to be a part of the chorus, and he arose to the challenge of creating a place of musical talents, embedded among a unique and culturally diverse group. He believes every person is a musician. While there are different levels of talent, students are highly expected to give their best effort. It is his goal to excite students about music and to provide them with meaningful musical instruction in a positive, supportive learning environment. He has high expectations for each musician and believes that anyone can be successful in music. This year the Oliver Middle School Chorus sang background vocals for Carrie Underwood in the ABC program Teachers Rock. Also they presented concerts at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and the Nashville Sings event sponsored by the Metro Arts Commission.

The Nashville Singers annual Season of Harmony concert will be held on November 17, at 7:00pm at Hillsboro High School. Tickets are on sale now.
