On Tuesday, May 21st, The Seven Hills boys and girls choir performed their spring concert. The choir started strong with an all choir performance of the South African freedom song Gabi with drum percussions by Kate Coley (9) and Allie Allen (9). The boys then took a break and the girls performed two beautiful songs called Songbird and May it Be, from Lord Of the Rings. The boys then came back onto the stage and did a great job of singing Til the Stars Fall From the Sky. After Til the Stars Fall From the Sky, the boys performed a more humorous irish folk song, Mick McGuire. Following the specific performances, both gender groups finished the select chamber ensemble consisting up of only 8 boys and 10 girls. The select chamber ensemble performed Hold On and Seven Bridges Road, accompanied by Michael Bain (12) on the guitar. After the smaller groups were finished the choir came back together and performed four song as a whole group. The choir performed Oye, Prsi, Prsi Prsi, Kiss the Girl, and, True Light with soloists Palmer Kruzner (9) and Caleigh Griffin (12). At this point in the concert became very emotional as seniors and Mrs. Groom started to cry. Mrs. Groom introduced the seniors one by one and commemorated them on their years in choir. There was a special recognition for Caroline Bonini (12), Zoe Pochobradsky (12), Jasmine Terry (12), Michael Bain (12), Jasmine Cline-Bailey (12), Lauren Gerhardt (12), Amanda Shepherd (12), and Evan Werner (12) who have been in choir with Mrs. Groom for 7 years. Then, to finish the concert the seniors gave a special performance of Home, with Bain on the guitar again while their baby pictures and senior portraits were displayed in a slideshow.
