Choir’s Fall Debut
Choir Department starts the year off feeling connected by their passion for music.
October 21, 2019
San Dimas Choir has at least four main concerts a year which usually go the same way every time. This year, the Choir Department did something that nobody would have expected to make such an impact.
Usually singers go backstage between performances which results in a chaotic mess behind the scenes. Backstage is a whirl of panicked singers trying to get on stage on time and people socializing. This year, singers sat in the audience to actually watch the other performances. This allows singers enjoy the music their peers have spent so much time perfecting, and also create a better community for the choir department.
Senior, Brooke Martens, shares her view on the new seating arrangements, “Even though it might not seem like a huge deal to the audience, this concert was a lot different than the rest because of where we were sitting. We could actually listen to what the other choirs were singing which we never do and I thought that was pretty cool.”
Martens talks about the difference it can make for the beginning choirs. “I think it’s really important especially for beginner choirs to hear the more advanced choir because it’s something they can watch to see what it takes to move up in the department.”
During the entirety of the show, everyone in the building seemed to be engaged in the music. Martens opens up about how this small change affected her concert experience, “Honestly, I felt so connected to everyone compared to how I usually feel because it just felt so cool to see us work together as a department and realize what we can accomplish.”
Overall, Choir’s Fall Debut was a success in both the music aspect, as well as, growing as a community. Singers started the year off feeling connected to each other through sharing their passion for music.
