The choir department held its variety show Feb. 14-15 in the auditorium.
Before the curtains opened, a piano cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ and image of Dragon’s radioactive came over the speakers as audience members, friends and parents found the best seats to watch the show.
The curtains opened to reveal both choirs ARS NOVA and TACTUS on stage singing and dancing to Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”.
While senior Jake Mickel, one of four emcees, introduced the show and welcomed audience members, the other emcees came out to help Mickel, who had trouble forming sentences.
Seniors Isabelle Robison, Anna Gagnon, and Jackson Hart helped Jake introduce the singer of the opening number as Freddie Mercury from Queen. Mickel almost got it and said, “ That was ‘Somebody to Love’ by the queen Freddie Mercury,” which got some laughs.
The next two acts were dancing and singing, and a short monologue performed by sophomore Sinead Lundquist about how she ate the divorce papers just to get back with her husband. The senior guys danced to Mr. Lonely, a song about a man that can’t get himself a girl.
Juniors Joshalyn Smith and Mckay Fife performed a Xanadu medley.
Junior Jacob Huffaker recited a short poem called ‘Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening’ about stopping by a house in the woods while it snows.
There was audience participation and some acts even got a few standing ovations. Despite some lighting, tech and sound issues, everyone went above and beyond to deliver an outstanding show and every clap was well deserved.
