Tuesday night was the Spring Vocal Program, featuring the Middle School Chorus and High School Concert Choir. The night began with the annual Senior Showcase, hosted by Bre Francis.
Kayla Bish performed Brandi Carlile's "The Story," Brenna Kern performed "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" from Phantom of the Opera, and Maddy Blasko performed "Slipping Through My Fingers" from Mamma Mia. Blasko and Kern then teamed up to perform "Man or Muppet" from The Muppets Movie.
The showcase also featured an 8th grade spotlight, as Kierra Sanders performed Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" from the movie The Bodyguard.
The Middle School Chorus then took the stage for five songs, beginning with the 7th and 8th graders performing "Mamma Mia/Dancing Queen." The 5th and 6th graders came on the stage to perform "Papa Loves Mambo." The entire chorus then performed "Fly Away Home," "Chained to the Rhythm," and "Lovely."
As the High School Concert Choir made its way to the stage, Shatyra Parker sang a rendition of "Promise." The concert choir opened its slate of songs with "When I Grow Up" from Matilda, featuring solos by Theo Coyne, Ryan Packer, Brenna Kern and Kendall McConnell. The next song was "Glory" from the movie Selma, which featured solos from Chaya Beatty, Wendell Slade and Pharaoh Conway.
After a performance of "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the chorus sang "Helpless" from Hamilton with solos from Tarai Jones, Brenna Kern, Theo Coyne and Kayla Bish. The main portion of the show finished up with performances of "One Call Away" and a medley from "High School Musical" that included solos from Wendell Slade and Maddy Blasko.
The evening ended with a performance of "The Call" from Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian that featured solos from Maddy Blasko, Brenna Kern and Shatyra Parker, as well as one from choir director Ms. Sharon Kampe. The Spring Vocal Program was Ms. Kampe's final show, as she is retiring at the end of the school year. The students presented Ms. Kampe with a small token of their appreciation for all of her hard work and guidance.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Middle School Chorus and High School Concert Choir!
