2020 has been a year filled with cancellations, postponements, and rescheduling, but one of the biggest traditions in Quincy during the holidays will happen, just virtually this year!

Quincy Senior High School's Vespers is scheduled for Saturday, December 12th this year at 6 pm and you cant attend in person but you can still see it! On the Facebook event page created for Vespers they say...

"The tradition of Quincy Senior High School Vespers will continue this year virtually. The modified yet meaningful holiday concert will include Symphonic & Concert Orchestras, Freshman, Varsity & Concert Chorales, Concert and Madrigal Choirs and the QSHS Brass Ensemble. The program will air on WGEM Channel 10 Saturday, December 12 at 6p."

This makes me so happy to hear, we have seen a lot of focus at the high school level in Illinois on the athletes not getting to play their sports in the fall and now winter portions of the school year due to COVID-19, and they have every right to be frustrated, but we can't forget about all of the students who participate in the arts from choir to band, theatre, and dance. These students have also had to deal with cancellations and missing out on important high school moments, so to see that this event will still happen makes me so happy for those students, and the community to get to enjoy this Quincy tradition!
