Choir has had a performance every year for the student body of Heritage, but this year things are changing for the choir class. New music and themes are being introduced.
“This concert is more exciting than last year, there are many changes that have been made, such as the group dance. All the choirs are joining together to do this. There are also different types of songs in each choir and the way specific choir groups are performing their songs is different,” says Vlanca Jeannoutot ’16, choir member.
This year has changed more than just the music and the way it will be performed, but the theme of each song is new and different.
“The theme of this concert is heroes and there is a large variety of styles of songs. Because many people view a hero differently there are several different interpretations of what a hero might be. Some Disney songs are more obviously about a hero, some are love songs, and some are religious songs to represent all the different views of how a hero may be portrayed,” says Jeannoutot.
Music is the perfect way to express feelings and emotions. These emotions can be expressed in multiple different ways. Music can be a stress reliever and way to just relax.
“Singing is my passion so that would be the most obvious reason that I enjoy choir, but other than that my favorite part is Mr. Fischer, he’s such an amazing teacher. He is an amazing person to be around and trust in,” says Jeannoutot.
Mr. Andrew Fischer says, “The choir group is amazing because the music they sing is so big and epic.”
Singing music that is so “epic” could change a student’s life immensely, even bringing career options into their future.
“Choir has changed the way I deal with other people and also brought so many new and amazing friends into my life. I’ve learned that everyone has different ways of representing themselves and handling situations and that those differences must be respected,” says Jeannoutot.
Mr. Fischer says, “I think this concert will be great. It will be filled with energy.”
The Choir concert is on Wednesday, March 16 at 6:30 in the Heritage High School Theatre.
