Choir holds their annual spring concert

Choir performed in the performing arts center Monday, March 4.

The choir department held their annual spring concert Monday, March 4 at 7pm in the Performing Arts Center. The department performed along with the Mill Creek Middle School 8th grade choir. Senior Guss Miller explains how the spring concert differs from others.

“The spring concert is different from other concerts because we perform music that we take to state large group contest,” Miller said. “For Jag Singers we perform our songs at regional and state solo and ensemble.”

According to junior Ayden Brown, the choir had less time to prepare for the concert than normal due to the several snow days at the beginning of the quarter. 

“The preparation for this concert was similar to that of previous concerts, but on a far more condensed scale,” Brown said. “With all of the events and snow days we had at the beginning of the semester, it really meant that we had to devote a large amount of time outside of class to memorize our music.”

Additionally, Miller thanks choir teacher Jessie Reimer for helping them learn their music on time.

“Our preparation for the concert was difficult this year because of how many snow days we had,” Miller said. “Thanks to Reimer we were able to learn our songs pretty fast with time to really work on the smaller details.”

Brown feels that the energy from other choir members can affect the performance.  

“My favorite song to perform would probably be ‘Apple Tree’, as everyone in the choir brings an extra amount of energy that makes the song extremely fun to perform.”

Dancing makes a performance more enjoyable for Miller.

“My favorite song to perform was definitely ‘Hela Rotan’ because we do a lot more than just sing in it, we dance and move in it as well as play tug of war. It’s fast and crazy and I like how everyone is singing something different.”

Overall, Brown prefers singing as a whole department. 

“My favorite part of the concert was definitely doing the final song ’Journey On‘ with all of the choirs. I always enjoy singing as a collective, as it gives a sense of unity amongst the choir department.”
