Celebrate America Across Montana
Tim Janis with State School Choirs (2016) (No. 601)
First Aired Monday, March 7, 2016
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 2016 at the KUSM-MontanaPBS studio in Bozeman. School buses brought hundreds of students from Montana school music programs including Arlee, Big Fork, Choteau, Corvallis, Frenchtown, Great Falls Central, Hamilton, Hardin, Mount Ellis Academy, Power, Red Lodge, and Sacajawea Middle School. 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.
