Seminole High’s chorus has been hard at work fine-tuning their pieces for the upcoming Fall Preview, which will be held at 7 pm tonight in the KWC Performing Arts Center. This first concert of the year will feature all of the choral groups, which include the Gospel Choir, Dynamics Show Choir, Festival Choir, Destiny Show Choir, First Take, and Concert Choir.

The fall preview will kick off the chorus’ year of performances, allowing the school to get a glimpse of what is to come.

“[Having] only [had] the first nine weeks of class, it’s a chance for people to get a taste of what is going on in the choral program,” says chorus teacher Ms. Lesa Boettcher.

The concert will include recitals from each group, soloists, and the entire choral program as a whole. For many of the performers, this will be their very first performance, so both stress and excitement levels are running high.

“We’re all really hyped up and hoping it will turn out well,” says freshman Stefani Allegra, who sings with the Festival Choir. Allegra is one of the many students who auditioned directly with Ms. Boettcher for a soloist spot.

To prepare for auditions, some students listened to the music over and over again, reviewed sheet music, and more. Officers helped arrange vocals and in some choirs, even choreography. “We practice a lot in order to make the concert as perfect as possible,” Allegra says.

“I started [singing] in Gospel Choir this year,” says sophomore Ervin Dupuis. “I auditioned for the first time this year. I sort of winged it, but I’m really happy to be part of this chorus.”

According to Dupuis, Gospel choir can be different from the other choirs because it is religious music. However, each of Seminole High’s choirs  has a different type of music to contribute to the concert this month, from the acclaimed Destiny Show Choir, to First Take which performs jazz a cappella, to the Festival Choir which specializes in classical music.

“I really [hope] to have a successful first performance,” says Dupuis. After the many weeks of preparation and practice, the chorus is proud to present themselves and give their audience a flavor of what is to come throughout the year.
