“It doesn’t matter if your days are long (Sing!) It doesn’t matter if your night’s gone wrong (Sing!)” That was the message felt through the night at the All-City Chorus Concert at the Hylton Performing Arts Center, 6 February 2018. This annual event brings all the Manassas City schools together for a night of music and entertainment. This year, the elementary schools opened the evening with their rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” then transitioned to “Take Time In Life,” an African folk song complete with bongos, xylophones, and drums. Mayfield Intermediate, Metz Middle School, and Osbourn High School all performed energetically with the finale showcasing all eight schools in the district performing two final songs as one large combined chorus. Members of the School Board and City Council were present to witness the spectacular performances, with opening remarks presented by Superintendent, Dr. Catherine Magouyrk.  It was noted that the Manassas City schools provide music education to over 3300 elementary-aged children, with over 500 students continuing in chorus from 5th to 12th grade.
