Choirs perform at Cabaret Night
All choirs performed at the annual Cabaret Night, the first choir concert of the year, from 7 – 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 29 and Saturday, Sept. 30 in the Multi-Purpose Room.
The choirs showcased a variety of genres from pop to jazz, including musical numbers such as “Sisters,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,” “Na Na Na,” “Sing” and “Cabaret.”
“Performing, to me, shows off the hard work we put in, and the fact that this is the first performance established how the rest of the year will be,” Chamber Singer sophomore Lawrence Milo said. “I’m looking forward to being back [on the stage] and just performing again.”
Cabaret Night rehearsals began during the summer and continued into the school year. Singers practiced a variety of techniques such as switching the order of singers around to re-familiarize themselves to singing in a group as well as performing motions together.
“[I was] kind of nervous because it’s the first performance of the year, [but] I like the thrill of how [I] get to show what I can [do],” Treble Choir freshman Alicia Chong said. “[Cabaret Night helps] everybody see that we’re not just a choir that stands there. We can perform [in] different styles as well.”
