Part of a send off to the District Large Group Contest Festival Mar. 25, the Concert Choir, STA Chorale and STA Singers put on the Spring Concert Mar. 21 from 7:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The songs were diverse in origin, from a traditional African-American spiritual to a 19th century Quaker hymn and a Serbian folk song. Concert Choir, composed of freshmen, sang “Shine on Me,” arranged by Rollo Dilworth, followed by the STA Chorale and STA Singers’ performances of Gwyneth Walker’s “How Can I Keep from Singing?” and Eric Whitacre’s “Five Hebrew Love Songs”. The concert ended with a mass concert where all three choirs joined in together for two pieces: David Brunner’s “O Music,” and Ilija Rajkovič’s “Makedonsko devojče.”

The auditorium was crowded with parents, teachers and classmates listening to the sonorous harmonies of the singers, accompanied at times by piano, accordion, violin, cello, djembe and tambourine.

Seniors Rose Genaris and Libby Terril are co-captains of the choir council this year, in charge of organizing Creative Grounds, planning each concert, creating a script and decorating the stage according to the season.

“These next few concerts are going to be a tad bit emotional because I’m coming to a close of my whole chorale career here at STA,” Genaris said, reflecting back on her time with the chorale. “It’s been a great four years, but they’ve flown and so the realization that they’re almost over is kind of hard… It’s changed me as a person.”
