The last month of school brought several entertainment options, including the last choir concerts.
The choir performed May 2 for their Formal concert. This was the second to last choir performance with all three choirs - Ladies’, Concert, Chamber - being present. Songs included: “Dry Bones”, “Ave Verum Corpus”, “The Neighbor's Chorus”, and “Precious Lord”.
“Singing is such a cool part of my day, I’m so ready for this concert,” said sophomore Trinity Nieto before the concert.
The concert did not require tickets but donations were accepted at the door. They were also selling raffle tickets for a chainsaw which will be drawn on the night of the Pops concert.
Don’t worry if you missed the Formal concert though, because May 4 will be the Pops concert. This year the theme was Broadway and the choir was bringing out the big guns. With songs like “Sunrise, Sunset” from the musical Fiddler on the Roof and “This is the Moment” from the musical Jeckyll and Hyde, the concert will be one to rival even the best performances.
“Broadway shows have some really good choir music in them and most are really fun to sing,” said junior Desiree Mayes.
This turned out to be the longest of the concerts though because of all the senior solos which were being performed between the choir songs.
“I was so glad I got to bring my big brother up on stage and sing with him because he’s my hero,” said senior Brianna Moore after the concert.
The last concert for the seniors brought with it lots of tears, especially when Anne Hancock, choir director, sang a solo originally to be sung by senior Laura Blizzard who passed away over the summer. With such an emotional end to the performing season, the choir says farewell to the Class of 2017.
