Hamilton high school choirs get together for the fall concert

All three high school choirs will sing Thursday night in the first concert of the year.

Fall is here and with it comes the fall choir concert. On Thursday, Oct. 18, all the high school choirs – Honor’s choir, Women’s Chorale, and the Musical Theatre class – will be singing songs in the first concert of the school year.

“We’re doing a bunch of foreign songs that are in African and Latin,” MTC’s Jaclyn Westrate said when asked what songs her class is singing. “I like ‘Can I ride’ the best.”

Songs that have been selected to sing are titled: “I sing out”, “Come ye Thankful”, “Battle of Jericho”, “Heart, we will forget him”, “A thought like music”, and “Can I ride”. Foreign titles are “Wana Baraka”, “Duerme”, “Exaudi”, “O Shenandoah”, and “Agnus Dei”.

“Wana Baraka is my favorite,” Woman’s chorale’s Brianna Price said, “But Woman’s chorale isn’t the only one singing that song, all the high school choirs are.”

The high school choirs are each singing songs on their own, but songs ‘Wana Baraka’ and ‘I sing out’ are songs that they will to be singing together as a large group. Plus, the middle school students who are in MP3, are also learning ‘I sing out’, and are able to join the high school singers for that song if they choose when the time comes.

“I hope they [the audience] learn to appreciate our music program more,” Price said about what the audience may take away from the preformance.

The fall concert will take place at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium.  Admission is free.
