It’s that time of year again when Juab high schools Choir perform their Christmas concert! Monday December 5th was a day full of music here in juab with performances by our General choir, Concert choir, and Musical theater class as they sang their wonderful songs.
The concert began with a combination of all the classes singing a beautiful rendition of “Silent Night” with Sharlee Krough as a soloist on the third verse. The next group to perform was the General choir, singing “Christmas… in 3 minutes” and “All I Want For Christmas is You,” featuring Ashton Jennings as a soloist and some fabulous dance moves by the guys.
The next performance was a small group made up of Holly Marchant, Leah Thorn, Breanne Gardiner, Rebecca Marchant, Kylie Black, and Hannah Echols singing “Forget About The Boy” from the musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” Along with their beautiful voices, they entertained the audience with some great choreography.
After the group had finished their piece, the Musical Theater class took their place on the stage. They sang a beautiful White Christmas medley starting with wonderful soloists, Jackson Hanks and Maddison Carle, in “White Christmas.” Further into the medley a beautiful solo in “Count Your Blessings” was sung by Breanne Gardiner. The whole class radiated Christmas cheer as they sang/acted their hearts out. To finish up was a duet titled, “Fine,” from the musical “Ordinary Days” performed by the amazing Jackson Hanks and Maddison Carle.
Up next was the Concert Choir. Starting out they sang an alluring acapella version of “Carol of the Bells” that sounded so good it sent chills down everyone who could hear its spines. The song was followed with a Pentatonix medley with soloist Rebecca Marchant in “God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen.” Once they had finished their pieces, the rest of the performers came back to the stage once again to all come together and sing “Star of Bethlehem” along with any Juab choir alumni who came up from the audience. That song was led by the astounding Tana Esplin. Everyone sounded beautiful as they sang their last piece, it was a concert to remember.
All in all, the concert was beautifully done and we are looking forward to the next, and final concert this year, they have to offer this coming May. So if you’re interested in hearing amazing voices and watching lots of fun, come and watch!
