Concord Chorus Shines at Annual Spring Concert

Concord High School’s Choral held their annual Spring Concert on Mar. 8 at 7 p.m.

To start the night, the women’s choirs combined to sing “Tundra,” a song composed by Ola Gjellio, accompanied by the Concord High School String Orchestra. Following the opening piece, the small Mixed Choir sang two songs including “Kusimama,” with a solo by Prit Patel, and Glad You Came, with many soloists including Elijah Simmons, Tarron Johnson, Tiffany Brown, and Alex Pitt.

The Freshman Women’s Choir then sang two pieces, “Ave Maria” arranged by Patrick Liebergen, and “Beauty” composed by Vicky Tucker Courtney. Madrigals, a student-led group of students in chorus, sang “Danny Boy” arranged by Darmon Meader, with soloists Giovanni Malcolm, Erica Seraiva, Justin Wilson, and Sarah Wojcik, and “Listen!” composed by Ruth Elaine Schram. Bella Voce, also known as Select Women’s Choir, followed with “Evening Prayer” by Audrey Snyder, and “Salmo 150” arranged by musicologist Ernani Aguiar. To close the evening, Concord’s Chorale sang three songs, “Ave Verum Corpus,” “Sleep,” and “This Little Light of Mine,” with soloists Meghan Murray and James Mitchell.

Congratulations to all Concord Choral Singers, and a special thank you to Vocal Music Director teacher Lauren Conrad and student-teacher from the University of Delaware, Theodore Cherney.

Also a big thanks to pianists Stephen Benscoter and Maria Bezilla.

Concord hopes to continue their success as they head to Disney World next week to perform their wonderful music.
