Holiday Choral Concert at Franklin Middle School

December 14, 2012

6:40 pm…All-School Chorus (including me), rehearsed at our school auditorium for the Holiday Choral Concert at 7:30 pm.

After the rehearsal, we were getting ready for the start of the concert…As soon as the stage curtains opened, audience began to listen and focus on us.

The first song we sang was “Festival Sanctus” by Leavitt…It is a Latin Christmas Song (one of my favorites :)).

Festival Sanctus by Leavitt…just half of the song was shot πŸ™‚

The second song was “Still, Still, Still,” an Austrian carol, arranged by Wheeler. This is a very calm song and we really enjoyed singing it because after an energetic song, “Festival Sanctus,” now, we all are calm…haaaaaaa.

Then comes another calm song, “In This House Tonight” by Jacobson and Emerson. This song is one of my favorites too because the melody lifts my mind to not think of anything else for a while :)…

Then comes my STARDOM…”Joyful, Joyful” by Beethoven, arranged by Lloyd Larson! It’s my stardom because I’m one of the soloists! The other soloists is an eighth grader, Britta…She really has a good voice too! Okay, please watch the video…You’ll like it and this is the only song where we have choreography :)…ENJOY!

Those are only the Vocal Ensemble, Lyric Singers, and Concert Choir :)…

Oops! Almost forgot…Our finale song was “Angels Sing Glory” excerpts by Vivaldi and Handel, arranged by Shackley. All the ensembles sang :)…

We really had an AWESOME night…Thanks to our conductress, Mrs. Forbes for all her hard work!
