The vocal department put on their annual Valentine’s Day and Heritage Concert on Feb. 9. The concert consisted of only love songs, and there were performances from both chorus and solo performers. The choruses sang classical songs while the solo performances consisted of more popular songs that were more known to the audience.

“The Valentine [and] Heritage concert started in the Black Box Theatre,” vocal dean Arlene Sparks said. “The concert was moved to Meyer Hall after it started get more and more popular year after year.”

When selecting songs to be performed at the concert, Ms. Sparks sticks to the Valentine’s Day theme and songs that go in correlation with Black History Month, and folk songs.

“I think the concert this year is really unique,” vocal sophomore Sarah Haughn said. “We perform a song, that is originally meant to be solo, as a chorus which is really different. The concert should really get people hyped for Valentine’s Day.”

The concert had various performances, and some of the performances were created and practiced by students outside of school. The performers who chose to work on something outside of school auditioned with their pieces to see if they qualified to perform in the show.

  “I let vocal freshman sit through the concert,” Ms. Sparks said. “They can really get a visual as to what the concert is all about. Over time as they watch what’s happening, it starts to plant seeds.Students always fill up the signup sheet year to year.”

About the Contributor
Alexa Pope
Alexa Pope, Lifestyle Editor
Having the name Alexa Pope usually entails getting referred to as ‘the Amazon thing’ and/or ‘that one lady from Scandal’, but since this is her very own bio, she thought she’d give this individuality thing a whirl. She love eating tomatoes like apples, going to the beach but not actually getting into the water, and dedicating one day out of the month to solely listen to New Edition. As funky as she may sound, she does have aspirations (shocker). She hopes to be a part of a magazine one day, role undecided, but it’s a dream to say the least. With this being her last year on The Muse, she hopes for the publication to grow to dynamic heights and for herself to grow along side it.
