On Nov. 19, students and administrators were treated to a concert that took them around the world. The B Choir girls, A Choir, Concert Choir, and Variations performed during third, fourth, and sixth periods in the Auditorium. Concert Choir started off the festivities singing a peppy African tune that set the tone for the rest of the concert. The B Choir girls continued the upbeat theme with “Oye” by Jim Papoulis, a song inspired by village children in Mexico. After a quick shuffling of seats, Variations stood up in the wings and traveled in pairs towards the front of the Auditorium, singing a French folk song. The highlight of the Variations performance was their rendition of “Voice Dance” by Greg Jasperse which has no words, just vocal sounds. All four choirs, with the accompaniment of junior Iris Liu on cello and sophomore Irene Chang on the flute, closed out the concert with another African song, bringing the program full circle.
