Tuesday’s Choral concert was a terrific success. The Junior High Choir started off the program with several pop/rock favorites, covering songs by Rascal Flatts, Journey, and more. Soloists Maya Ferrara and Natalie Quintero impressed the audience with their take on the jazz ballad ‘Dream a Little Dream of Me’.
The Beginning High School Choir followed with a very eclectic mix of songs, spanning the range of musical theater through Caribbean- and African-inspired repertoire. Several talented soloists were featured in this group.
Closing out the concert was the Premiere Choir. Soloist Aaron Eckert started off the set with ‘Tshotsholoza’, a South African freedom song which also featured drumming and dancing. The group of mostly juniors and seniors sung their way through jazz standards, movie soundtracks, and barbershop a cappella selections before stunning the audience with a challenging number from the group Pentatonix. The concert concluded with a combined performance from all three choirs. Director Megan Goodman commented, “I couldn’t be more proud of the work these students put into this concert – their hard work and dedication definitely showed in the performance!! What a great night of singing!”
