Singers ready to preform

By: David Hicks


It’s about the time for the beautiful sounds of singing and magnificent music to hit the air of Ripley High School. This December, the Concert Choir and Chamber Choir will be holding a concerted with the theme of Christmas in mind. The Mixed Choirs will be singing an assortment of songs including: Ding-a Ding-a Ding by: Greg Giplin, A Christmas Carol by: Charles Ives, A Rhapsody of Christmas by: Ed Lojeski, and Do You Hear What I Hear by: Harry Simeone, and many more.


The responsibility for being able to play this great show comes from the hard work from the students participating in choir. One of them, senior Maci Oiler, is a great example of natural talent. With her very beautiful and gifted voice Oiler is ready to start the show and to have fun with this year’s concert.


“I’m really excited to perform these pieces. Although I’m sad, I’m pumped to sing my last Christmas concert,” commented Oiler.


After John Ryder left last year, a new dominent figure takes the light of the choir teacher. Lily Corathers has been preparing these students and has been working hard to make these beautiful voices as good as they could be.


“Mrs. Corathers is a very good teacher and has been an awesome mentor to all of us,” says Oiler. “She works really hard to teach us and I feel that we will do find singing in different concerts this year.”


To see the choir sooner, you can go to the Tasty Cup Cakery in Ripley on Saturday November 19th, where they will be singing for a fundraiser. The Toys for Tots program will be collecting toys as the students sing, so go on down and be mystified by the voices of angels.
