BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook High School’s Music Department will unveil the BHS Auditorium’s new Wenger Diva Acoustic Sound Shell during a free community celebration at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 4 at the high school.

The sound shell, made possible by nearly $80,000 in donations from students, parents, teachers, administrators, school board members, businesses and community members, will not only allow musicians and conductors to hear a more accurate reflection of their performances, but will also provide an amazingly more professional sound for audience members.

BHS parent Diane Parro spearheaded the campaign along with BHS Director of Bands Aimee Rupsis and Director of Choirs Lawrence Fisher.

The BHS Sunrise Singers and the BHS Wind Symphony will join in the first-ever performance of the new BHS Alma Mater composed by Fisher with lyrics written by 2011 BHS graduate Kevin Nepomuceno.

A reception will follow in the BHS atrium.
