One of my most if not my number one creativity commitment this year is Senior Concert Choir. As someone that has been in the choir off and on since grade 3, choir is something that I’ve never questioned not continuing. It’s an easy, fun thing that I can do with my friends and get a commitment out of. I know lots of people join solely for the “commitment points”, but a lot of us are there because we really do enjoy it. It’s also very exciting this year because lots of guys from my grade joined, which means that next year when the gr 12s leave we might have a good base to build on.
On Dec 10, we went to ICBC to go caroling in our regular choir time before school. It went very well, but did get interesting when Ms. By suggested we do our new choreography for one of the songs having practiced it once. The employees at ICBC seemed to enjoy it, and we did get better for the Christmas concert.
This past Tuesday, we had our annual Christmas concert at the West Van United Church. I think it went really well, and the audience seemed to enjoy our songs especially our final number. From what I remember of doing this even last year or the year before, the event seemed a bit tedious to me because of the timing. We left the school out of our third block at about 1, went to the West Van United Church, and stayed there until 9pm, (omitting our dinner break). Every other year it has seemed a bit lengthy, but this year it was better because we spent the majority of the time practicing. I’m hoping my final concert next year will turn out just as fun!
