On Thursday, November 7, Camerata and Treble Choir had their fall concert. As is tradition, the singers dressed up in tuxedos with bow ties or floor-length black gowns, giving them a fancy and professional look.

Treble Choir started off the night with the songs “Whispering Hope,” “Kaleidoscope Heart” and “Seal Lullaby.” Camerata followed with “Stars,” “Tuba,” and “Goodnight Moon.” The lyrics of “Goodnight Moon” are based on Margaret Wise Brown’s picture book. Our Camerata was one of the first choirs to perform the musical adaptation.

In the evening’s final song “Let the River Run,” the two choirs sang together. Senior Harry Mills from orchestra joined them, playing double bass. Seniors Kyle Channell, Liam McCann, Dalyn Decree, and junior Mahala Howard were also featured. They played percussion instruments like the bongos and shaker to help set the rhythm of the song. “Let the River Run” is by Carly Simon and was originally featured in the 1988 movie Working Girl.

Throughout the show, Mrs. Jennifer Kristoff accompanied the singers on the piano. Choir teacher Amy Brooks was on stage to direct and conduct.

Afterwards, the choir stayed back on stage to pose for an official portrait, then they came outside to join family and friends for a light reception.
