Tim Janis with State High School Choirs (2014) (No. 501)

First Aired Monday, March 03, 2014

High school choirs from throughout Montana perform with Tim Janis in this special created to spotlight our nation's youth, and pull communities together in an uplifting and inspiring celebration of music. The program was taped in January 2014 at the KUSM-MontanaPBS studio in Bozeman. School buses brought hundreds of students from Montana high school music programs including Anaconda, Belgrade, Billings Skyview, Mount Ellis Academy, Heritage Christian, Corvallis, Florence-Carlton, Frenchtown, Hamilton, Hobson and Polson. Well-prepared and very professional, each choir came into the studio to record their performance. Tim Janis, familiar to public broadcasting audiences from programs such as An Enchanted Evening, Beautiful America and Coastal America, is well known for his "Music with a Mission" philosophy, and has worked on many philanthropic projects.
