The Advanced Choir performing at the
Dec. 13 Winter Concert
By Christine Cortes, Courier Staff Writer
The James Logan Advanced and Chamber choirs held their kickoff concert in the Performing Arts Center, giving a preview of the sets that they will perform in competion tomorrow in Anaheim.
With each choir performing three songs, the show was about 45 minutes long and only cost $5 per ticket, but it was definitely worth the money and the time. The students were able to showcase how hard they have worked by performing beautifully in each song.
Advanced choir, which is a choir composed of about 60 students and has class everyday, had a jaw-dropping set in which they flaunted their versatility and were able to evoke emotions from the crowd. Their rendition of Eric Whitacre's 'Water Night' was something that one cannot even explain in words, and should be seen in person. The Chamber choir, though with only about 30 students and two hours worth of practice a week, showed that their dedication to music is beyond that of a normal teenagers. With a wonderful soloist, one of their songs, 'Tango to Evora', was adorable with their poses in the beginning and very appealing to the ears.
These students are going to compete on Friday. At stake may be more than first place gold medals; the members are also trying to keep the choir program alive. Recently, JLHS performing arts teachers received the news that they may not coming back next year. Students are trying to show their love for their programs by displaying the amazing things they can do, and that they have dedicated their lives to their passions.
The Logan community can check out the Advanced and Chamber choirs in their spring concert at the end of May.
