Jazz Choir, Chorale, and Concert Choir

Wednesday night was the end of year chorus concert and Jazz Choir, Chorale, and Concert Choir all performed, directed by Rachel Carroll and accompanied by Jody Pongratz.

The night started off with the Jazz Choir performing three songs. After opening with “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” they followed with “As Time Goes By” and concluded with “It Had To Be You,” featuring Ryan Rosenblatt on the solo.

After the applause, Chorale walked on stage to join the men of Concert Choir. Chorale performed the wonderful “Hymn to Freedom,” followed by “Alleluia,” which included some perfectly pronounced German lyrics. Lowell Glovsky and Brianna Fay soloed on “All You Need is Love,” and then the set finished with a great arrangement of “Bless the Broken Road.”

Concert Choir was the final group to perform. With a vase of red roses on the piano and Richard Ting (violin) and June Kim (cello) accompanying, the 19 member group sang “O, My Luve’s Like a Red, Red Rose.” For the second time of the night, the audience listened to German lyrics in “Tanzen und Springen.” Bobby Dresser and Attrace Chang sang like angels during their solos in “And So It Goes.” Concert Choir closed up the night with a crowd favorite, “Seasons of Love.” Robyn Levy stepped in for Kennis Forte for the solo and did a fantastic job.

Attrace Chang spoke for all the seniors when she commented after the show, “I’m really sad that this is my last chorus concert. It’s been an integral part of my high school experience, and I’m going to miss everyone.”
