High school choir gets some breathing room

New Richmond High School’s award-winning choirs will be breathing a little easier when they hit the high notes during practice sessions in the school’s vocal music room.

The vocal music room has been renovated with new carpet and a repaired and expanded ventilation system.

Storage areas in other parts of the building were found for book shelves and bins stacked along the walls to open up the room for the maximum of 120 students the fire code allows.
