All choirs perform at Pancake Breakfast

Advanced Treble Choir, Chamber Singers, Men’s Ensemble, Mustang Singers and Treble Choir performed at the annual Choir Pancake Breakfast Saturday, Nov. 16 from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR). 

The Pancake Breakfast helped raise money for students in choir, and tickets for the event were $10. Parent volunteers cooked eggs, sausages and pancakes for the audience and performers.

“[The purpose was] to have a fun time and eat breakfast so people could listen to our songs while enjoying the breakfast,” Men’s Ensemble freshman Bryce Tang said. “I think we all did a really good job performing because we practiced for a long time.”

Choir has been preparing for about two months by practicing the songs during class. Choir cabinet members arrived at school at 6 a.m. to set up the MPR and wash the utensils. 

“I think [Pancake Breakfast] was a great opportunity for the choir to showcase its talent, and I also think it was a fun experience for the people that were watching because they got to enjoy their food while watching the performance,” secretary of Advanced Treble Choir senior Chrizelle Tungpalan said. “I think this benefits me because I was able to perform with a group that I love, and I also got to develop more social skills.”

Parent volunteers Vinh Truong and Grace Chang organized the event. Parent volunteer Michelle Cheng coordinated the food pickup and sponsors for the breakfast.

“[Pancake Breakfast] helped prepare us for the winter concert and what is to come,” Mustang Singers sophomore Kiana Kruise said. “Everyone did good, and everyone tried their best.”
