SSHS’s vocal talent exploded on stage at the May Concert to finish the year with a bang! Seniors Spencer Howells, Rayna Pollard, Mary Watson and Mark Whitmore are well prepared to carry their voices out into the big world, but there are many students building up their skills in the middle school and Belles Voix choirs to take their turns with Tapestry.  All singers were shining through on stage and spilling their enthusiasm into the audience. Thank you to Director David Omer and Darlene Clegg, a former director herself, who propelled the ivory, and our supportive administration for making this caliber of vocal performances possible.

All under the enthusiastic and expert direction of Mr. Omer, the four SS choirs combined for the opening piece “Seize the Day” from the Newsies.  Each choir performed songs ranging from traditional spirituals and folk songs to Irving Berlin’s Anything You Can Do.  Zoe Brown, Mark Whitmore, Mary Watson and the Men’s Tapestry then performed individual and small group pieces performed for Solo and Ensemble state competition before Tapestry took the stage, rising goosebumps all around with their “Nine Hundred Miles” and “Lonesome Road” renditions.

The Tapestry has chosen New York City as its destination for their 2017-2018 Spring Tour. Partnering with Educational Performance Tours, Tapestry will perform in NYC at concerts designed to support various educational programs in NYC schools through both the funds raised at those concerts as well as through the music shared.  In addition to a cultural exchange, Tapestry will sample some of the best music in New York on Broadway.
