On Thursday, May 2nd, the choirs of University Prep had their spring concert at the gym starting at 7pm. Directing the choirs was Ms. Lanie Smit who conducted the performances of Beginning Choir, Intermediate Choir, and Madrigals.

Starting off the night, Beginning Choir began their performance with ‘Red River Dances’ and then continued on with songs ‘Wade in the Water’, ‘Canon of Praise’, ‘Chantez Alleluia’, ‘Kang Ding Flower Song’ accompanied by Flautist Ashley Cano, and ‘Bonse Aba’.

Following Beginning Choir, Intermediate Choir sang ‘Siyahamba’, ‘Ubi Caritas’, ‘How Far I’ll Go’, and ‘Phantom of the Opera’ which was composed of many songs from the play/movie such as ‘Think of Me’, ‘Angel of Music’, ‘All I Ask of You’, ‘Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again’, and ‘The Point of No Return’.

After Intermediate Choir, Madrigals went up to perform their pieces. First up was an Italian song, ‘V’amo Di Core’, a song which Madrigals split into a three part round. Following that, ‘Love Never Ends’ featured Sophomore Isabel Bernal as a soloist. ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ had Senior Alexia Figueroa as the soloist. ‘Ave Regina Coelorum’ had to be one of the more complex songs of their performance and was one of the songs they performed for Festival in March. Ending their performance, the group performed ‘SiSi Ni Moja’, an upbeat song meaning ‘we are one’.

Although all of the songs were performed well, no one would stop talking about the combination of all choirs (being Madrigals, Beginning Choir, and Intermediate Choir) and their performance of ‘Rewrite the Stars’ from the movie ‘The Greatest Showman’.

It even became the favorite part of the whole concert for some people like freshman Juan Neri who stated that it was amazing. While many seemed nervous during practice, before the concert on Thursday night, Neri said, “I just treated it like any other practice,” to help get through the jitters.

The concert went on amazingly well with all choirs’ performances showing the hard work and dedication they put into their music.
