Choir holds concert to introduce new members

            It’s that time of year again, the annual Meet the Choir concert.  It is being held on October 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium.  This year the choirs will be singing fan favorites such as “A Whole New World,” “I Bought a Cat,” and “The Rattlin’ Bog,” but those aren’t the only surprises the choir has.
            A new year brings new students.  The Mixed Choir has gained 47 new students, while Concert and Chamber Choir have gained a total of 4 new members.  Just because there are numerous new students, that doesn’t mean these amazing choirs aren’t skilled. 
            “How our voices blend together is one of our strengths,” said Alexis Lewis, a senior who is a member of the Chamber Choir.  Meanwhile, Lilly Corathers, the choir director, has her own ideas.
            “I feel one of the Concert Choir’s strengths is self-reflection,” said Corathers. 
            She also feels that the Mixed Choir has an energetic attitude.  Lewis’s goal for Chamber Choir this year is to “improve our sound as a group,” while Corathers’ goals for Concert and Chamber Choir is to place at the Martinsburg Concert and Show Choir Festival and to increase the audience attendance at concerts.
            Most students do not know the differences between these three awesome choirs.  According to Corathers, the Mixed Choir is open to all students at Ripley High School with music set for the choir’s skill level.  The other two choirs require an audition which is held at the end of the school year.  Concert Choir is usually chosen as an elective by experienced band and choir members due to their ability to read sheet music.  Chamber Choir is for advanced choir members, and it travels to more performances such as the Concert and Show Choir Festival in Martinsburg.
            Overall, it sounds like the Meet the Choir concert will be one to remember.  It seems like the Choirs still have some surprises up their sleeves for their next two concerts.  The entire student body will be excited to discover the surprises the Choirs have in store.

  6. The Whitman-Hanson Girls Varsity Lacrosse team won their preliminary round state tournament game at Nauset today 10-4. The first half saw the Warriors come out with some speed and WH found themselves in a 3-0 hole. Some small adjustments on defense and more hustle on the circle led the Panthers to a 5-3 lead with 4 minutes to go in the first half.
