On Monday, October 26sth, the Buffalo High School Concert choir blew us away with their amazing performance. The concert began at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center with an intermission halfway through; the cost was $7 for adults, and $5 for students. With only seven weeks to prepare for this event, Mr. Walsh and the students had to really step it up to be ready in time for the concert.
“I had to memorize so much music!” exclaims Junior Pickle Hjelmberg. “Plus I had all my songs from Seussical [the fall musical].”
The Concert choir started out with the song Schubert Mass in G for the audience on Monday. Then the BHS singers came out and wowed the crowd with The Star Spangled Banner, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Danny Boy, Thriller, and Welcome to the Wonderful World of Sports. Afterward, the Treble Singers came out and performed a few songs, and then the Concert Choir came back out. They ended with Hark! I Hear the Harps Eternal, Zigenerleben, Early One Morning, and That Lonesome Road. The songs were difficult, but the students knew it was all worth it when they heard the applause after each tune.
“Zigenerleben was so hard to sing,” says Junior D.J. McMoil. “It was 25 minutes long, and all in German.”
If you couldn’t make it to this performance, make sure to clear your schedule for the next one, on December 21st at 7:30 p.m. in the PAC.
“We’re starting to learn our Christmas music for the next concert,” laughs Junior Katie Mueller. “I’m so excited!”
