WHHS Choir “Biles Down Cabbage” at the Spring Concert

By Hannah Lee and Samantha Segreto

WHHS Chamber Choir and Concert Choir united to perform music that was rich with harmony and rhythm, spreading the early sounds of spring.

On Wednesday, March 9th, 2016 these two choirs performed in the WHHS Auditorium for their Annual Spring Concert. It was filled with many songs from many different ages and places that represented individuality and a sense of uniqueness. The Concert choir sang songs called “Come to Me”, “Aitchison Topeka and Santa Fe”, and “Bile Them Cabbage”. The Chamber choir seemed to sing more elegant and mature songs, along with the occasional pop song. These consisted of “The Mouse Madrigal”, “And So It Goes”, “How Can I Keep From Singing”, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, and “Omnia Sol”.

Parents and loved ones gathered in the auditorium, anxious to hear what the choirs had in store for them after months of hard work and rigorous practices. Although many were disappointed as to how short the concert was, the performances satisfied their hunger.

This concert was bittersweet for many of the seniors. Towards the end of the concert, all the seniors from both choirs were acknowledged and embraced by Cara Palomba, the choir director. For many, this will be the last and final year of high school chorus participation, bringing feelings of both accomplishment and tearful sadness.

“This last concert brought back so many memories, and it will be hard to leave. However, because music is such a big part of my life, my choir memories will always stay with me. It was so great to be a part of something like the school choir. It’s really something I will cherish,” said Brianna Colon, senior of the Chamber choir.

In addition, the combined choirs, along with the Patriot Voices a Cappella group will be performing classic hits of both pop and Broadway on April 28 during the Wayne Hills annual Cabaret Night.
