SONGS AND SNACKS. Choir is holding a concert tomorrow in the cafeteria at 7 P.M.

The choir will put on their first concert of the year tomorrow at 7 P.M. in the cafeteria. It is titled the Short and Sweet concert due to its length and refreshments held afterward. 

After hours of practice, the choir is finally ready to showcase what they have been working on for a real audience. It will also be used as an informational meeting for parents.

“Performing is a huge part of our process,” head choir director Kenneth Labonski. “The short and sweet concert is the first official performance of the year that allows each group to present one choral piece as well as participate in a large group performance at the end of the concert.” 

Due to the pandemic last year, concerts and events were either canceled or modified to meet certain regulations, but this year, the program is getting back to some form of pre-corona-normalcy. 

“I’m looking forward to the concert because last year we couldn’t do it due to COVID-19,” junior Robert Patteson Jr. said.  

Concerts are not just for the audience, but they also serve as a platform for students to show off their talents. 

“It always brings cheer to the beginning of the school year and gets me and my family excited for concerts to come,” junior Abigail Willard said. 

This will be not only the first concert of the year but the first-ever high school performance for the new freshmen with a more advanced level of the art. 

“The difference is the difficulty of the music because middle school does basic notes and rhythms, and being in the high school choir has harder rhythms and notes,” freshman Tripp Henager said. “The notes are more like DO to LA; that is about five notes up in pitch, and in high school, you don’t do as many English songs and more Latin.”
