SF To Present Spring Concert
Southern Fulton High School Vocal Music Department will present its annual spring chorus concert on Saturday, May 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium. This year’s concert theme is “Let the Whole World in Every Corner Sing” and features senior high chorus, junior high chorus and SFHS Ensemble. Kelsie Truax, Emmaline Crouse, Molly Deneen, Mariah Hill and Lacey Beatty will be featured soloists. Graduating senior members of the choir will be honored and participants in county, district, and regional festivals will be recognized.
Senior high chorus is a mixed choir of students in ninth through 12th grade. The chorus will perform music in a variety of styles. Selections include a Mozart setting of Kyrie, composed when the musical prodigy was only 10 years old, and a cappella vocal version of “Flight of the Bumblebee.” The choir will also feature senior members in an arrangement of “Don’t Stop Believing,” inspired by the hit television show, “Glee.”
SFHS Ensemble is a 22- member group of dedicated vocalists that rehearses before school once a week. The Ensemble will perform five selections, including a new setting of the well-loved hymn, “Amazing Grace.” The group will feature senior William Taylor in an arrangement of the James Taylor hit, “Your Smiling Face.”
Junior high chorus is a mixed choir of seventh-and eighth-grade students. Selections by the junior high chorus will include a setting of “Scarborough Fair” and a novelty number, “Study Hall Blues.” The chorus will also perform the American minstrel song “Ching a Ring Chaw” as performed in the recent Franklin- Fulton County Chorus Festival.
The concert will conclude with three selections featuring the combined choirs. These include the concert theme song, “Let All the World in Every Corner Sing,” by English composer Ralph Vaughn Williams. This majestic piece will be performed “in the round” with more than 90 students surrounding the audience.
The public is invited to attend and enjoy the efforts of these talented students. Admission to the concert is $3 for adults and $2 for students. Proceeds benefit the choral activity fund. The chorus students and director Dan Meredith wish to thank the public for its continued support.
