Thinking it might be grade related, I said, "You can tell me after the others head to bed if you want to."
She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "Mrs. S called me into her office during choir and I thought I was in trouble. She closed the door and said, 'If I had an opening in honors choir would you like to fill it?' I told her I didn't try out, but she said, 'I have an opening and I need a strong alto.' So I said yes I want to be in honors choir!"
I thought that was pretty cool. On last Monday the schools in district 11 descended upon Dawson High and practiced all through two school days, and then performed a fantastic concert!
There was also a Mixed Honor Choir and they sang 6 songs: Gloria in Excelsis, Ave Verum Corpus, We Rise Again, Loch Lomond, Nigra Sum and Walk in Jerusalem.
The last the perform was the Honor Band. I didn't take an photos of the band, I find it rather difficult to capture a band in that auditorium. The played 3 pieces: The King Across the Water, Lux Arumque and Black Horse Troop. The first was very cool because half the band were playing "drums" The woodwinds all had a bucket and drum sticks, it was an outstanding way to get them going and it sounded fantastic! Of course, I am a drummer and really do enjoy a good beat!
