The choir department held its annual fall concert Tuesday, Oct. 18 in the Performing Arts Center. The concert was chosen as the activity of the week and a handful of students showed up to support the Jag Chorale, Jag singers, Bass choir and Grace Notes. There were also two quartets that performed during the concert.

Senior Carter Harvey is a member of the boys quartet and explained a little about it.

“The men’s quartet was made by me and my friend [senior] Brayden Heath,” Harvey said. “We came up with it for the harmony explosion and the girls one was made by choir teacher Jessie Reimer this year.”

Reflecting on the night, Reimer explains how the concert went well in addition to her favorite thing about concerts as the teacher. 

The students performed so well at the fall concert. We have worked really hard throughout first quarter to create a meaningful performance and I feel as though they performed their very best,” Reimer said. “My favorite part about concerts is seeing students light up on stage and give a stellar performance.”

Junior Lucy Roy goes into detail about what it feels like to perform on stage during concerts. 

Performing on stage is exciting and it is rewarding to have all of the hard work pay off,” Roy said. “Being able to show the audience the things we have been working on is fun and the overall atmosphere at a concert is a feeling that is hard to describe to others.

Additionally, Harvey described his favorite parts about the concert.

My favorite part of the concert was when I got to sing with my quartet,” Harvey said. “The best thing is getting to sing with my classmates because I love the way all of our voices just come together.”

Looking back, Reimer shared how the concert could have been changed for the better.

“I think the concert went extremely well, perhaps some of the “behind the scenes” things could have been better, like students knowing where their uniform is and not having issues with zippers and suspenders,” Reimer said. 

Overall, the concert was successful and Roy expressed her favorite thing about being involved in the choir. 

“The best thing about choir is how passionate everyone is and how everyone has the motivation to be the best we can which helps us to get better,” Roy said. “Our teacher, Mrs. Reimer, is also the best teacher we could ask for, so having a respectable teacher we all love makes choir enjoyable.”
