Last night marked Catherine’s final high school choral concert and it was the treat we’ve come to expect.
A special hallmark of the spring performance — aside from its program of pops numbers — is the senior sendoff. This year’s 45 senior choristers wore red roses on their lapels and were recognized toward the end of the night with a roll call of their names and a song all their own.
First, though, there were many other aural delights.
Here are some highlights. The Concert Choir (Catherine’s group) offered up a beautiful rendition of “Dust in the Wind.”
The finale was a medley from “Frozen.” Yes, we groaned, too, when we saw it listed on the program, but it was spectacular — stick with it to the end.
Their conductor, Patrick Taylor, is a stickler for detail and it shows each time these kids take the stage.
And of course there was the senior song, “Something is Holding me Here.” Basil and I agreed it was the best we heard that song performed in the last four years. We will really miss these nights, and I know Catherine will as well.
Here’s wishing each of these kids the very best. May they always carry a song in their hearts.
Lovely concert music and performance, Terri! I really enjoyed listening to their presentation! All the best to Catherine and her proud parents!
Thank you, Joan!
Thank you! Loved reading about your trip!
I will miss your videos of Catherine’s concerts. This was a wonderful set to hear as I ate breakfast, a great way to start the morning.
One of the things I remember best about GHS is the choral concerts. Mr Taylor is continuing a long tradition of excellence in choral directing — Gerry Mack, Ray Malone, John Zavitz, and others I didn’t know.
May Catherine continue singing with joy!
Thx so much! I’m glad she brought a smile to your day!
