Arts Festival – Choir

The Fall Arts Festival kicked off with a night of performances on Tuesday from North Pointe’s choral ensembles.  Leading off the concert was the newly-formed a cappella group, Under Arrest. The 10 members entertained the audience with their arrangements of Top 40 songs such as I Need Your Love, If I Die Young, and Daft Punk, all without the use of any instrumentation or accompaniment.  The Junior High choir followed next, performing some holiday favorites including “Here Comes Santa Claus” and “Welcome Christmas” from How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and featured a few prominent soloists.  The Beginning High School choir had the audience laughing and having fun with their concert closer entitled “Reuben and Rachel”.  For this concert, the Advanced Choir split into men’s and women’s ensembles for the first portion of their performance, before joining together to end their segment with an a cappella rendition of “Linus and Lucy”.  The concert concluded with all choirs combining to sing “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”.  Director Megan Goodman commented, “All of the groups put in so much hard work and effort this semester, and it paid off tonight in a fantastic concert! Each of these groups continues to get better every semester!!”
