Can you hear the people sing?

Catherine's group -- the Concert Choir -- prepares to perform. She's just to the right of the conductor, next to the light pole.

Catherine’s group — the Concert Choir — prepares to perform. She’s to the right of the conductor, next to the light pole, looking to her left.

Pops concert last night — the last choral concert of this school year and a treat as always.

I never cease to be amazed at the talent the kids have or how well they perform under the hot lights in all those layers of polyester.

There was a lovely send-off for the seniors, which I watched with new interest this year, since Catherine is now starting her list of high school “lasts.” Next year, she’ll be wearing one of those red roses pinned to her dress.

Each of the five choral groups’ individual performances was fabulous as always (I’m still smiling over the a cappella “William Tell Overture” the Chamber Singers just nailed), but the extra delight was the finale — a medley from “Les Mis.”

At 15 minutes, it is too long to load the whole thing, but here’s a clip from the end; I dare you NOT to sing along.

  1. Les Mis is one of my favorite shows, and I loved singing along with this. GHS has, in my memory, had spectacular choral groups, and this is certainly one of them. Thank you for sharing. It makes me want to go to the concert next year!

  2. I went to an arts school and I loved doing the choral concerts! My oldest loves to sing, so I am hoping that he will want to do some type of singing when he is older too. I love the Les Mis medley!
