Choir performs at parent meeting

On Tuesday, August 27th, all seven of White Station’s performing choirs came together to perform at the choir parent meeting. Although most of the meeting focused on information surrounding the choir year, the evening closed with two pieces performed by the 200+ students enrolled in a choir class. 

“The performance was really enjoyable and I think it was an early showcase of the capabilities of the choirs this year,” Gino Giorgianni (11) said. “With this year’s students and Mr. Powell and Mr. Massey’s skills, I’m looking forward to the great music we’ll make.”

The combined choirs performed “The Lord Bless You and Keep You,” by Peter Lutkin along with White Station’s very own Alma Mater, which was written by alumni from the 1950s but had been lost for many years. After it was recovered in the library, Powell rearranged it for performing purposes.

So although students and parents met to review the 2019-2020 choir schedule, the Alma Mater was performed for the first time in decades.

“I really enjoyed both songs we sang, and getting to sing the Alma Mater for the first time in years was exhilarating,” said Kayla Dooley (12).
