After months of rehearsals the students were ready. School District 22’s Choral Showcase took place on Wednesday at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre.
Nineteen choirs performed throughout the day, singing encouraging songs, such a “Fight Song” and popular songs from movies, such as “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music.
The highlight of the show was the musical finale, when all the choirs gathered on stage to sing “This Song is For the Children,” a song that brings awareness to issues such as poverty. Introduced by one of the students, he said “we sing the song to show our support to our brothers and sisters around the world.”
Students, and the public, are also invited to attend a Flash Mob at the Village Green Centre on Saturday, March 10 at 12PM in the Food Court. Those in attendance are asked to bring a new pair of socks that will be donated to the Upper Rom Mission.
