SSHS CHOIRS - 2016-17

The 2016-17 SSHS Choirs are off to a great start.  We have 5 choirs this year, including 22 voices in Singers - our Beginning Choir.  We sang our Alma Mater and the Star Spangled Banner for several activities at school including the Mock Election and all our Pep rallies.  We also sang O Canada and The Star Spangled Banner for the Columbus Cottonmouths Hockey Game. 

We took 16 Advanced and Chamber Choir students to the Auburn University Honor Choir in October where they were privileged to work with Dr. William Powell and Dr. Rosephanye Powell for the Day and put on a concert with about 150 singers.

We took 25 Advanced and Chamber Choir Students to Montgomery on November 4 to audition for Allstate Choirs.  We had 18 students make Allstate:  one girl in SSA, 5 guys in TTBB, and 12 in SATB.  Lots of hard work, dealing with nerves, and determination helped these Choir members achieve this great honor.

Our Choir will be singing for the Smiths Station Christmas Tree Lighting Program on Dec. 1.  Then they will all be featured in our annual Christmas Concert at Philadelphia Baptist Church on Dec. 6 at 7 p.m.  We do this free concert for the community and hope we will have a full house.  I think it is a Fun-filled program this year.

When this concert is done, we will be full-time into preparing for our Jan. 20, 2017 concert at the Renaissance Hotel in Montgomery for the annual AMEA Conference. We will have approximately 60 students there doing some of my favorite Sacred Selections.Since I am retiring after this year,  I want to do a lot of "My Favorite Things" this year.

February 16, 2017 will be our 3rd Java & Jazz Concert with our SSHS Jazz Band.  They just keep getting better and it is so much fun to do a concert with them.  It will be in our SSHS Cafeteria.  Cupcakes, coffee, and hot chocolate will be served with lots of "hot" musical arrangements.  We are planning to do James Corden's Car Karaoke with Stevie Wonder as part of our selections.  Should be a lot of fun!!
