All City Choir Essay

857 words - 4 pages

What do you think about when you think of singing? Do you think about the latest rock or pop craze? Or do you think about some opera singer on stage? For me, when I think about singing, I think about All City Choir.

     All City Choir is a try-out choir made up of about 60 kids in grades four through eight who’ve come together to sing. We also have three awesome conductors Wendy Gee, Wendy Masciotra (or who we call Mrs. M), and Eva Bettger and we sing from September through April in our two seasons: Christmas Season and Spring Season.

     In All City Choir, we also learn how to sing properly in many different ways. The first thing you ...view middle of the document...

     One piece we sang this year was called “Reflections of a Lad at Sea”. Our conductor for the last movement (Mrs. Gee) was always nagging us to add more energy into the song. The last movement was called “Ghost Ship” which was a story about a ghost ship a sailor had seen one night. It was a scary story so Mrs. Gee would demonstrate how we were supposed to sing by saying, “Now Listen! Well! As I tell a tale! Of a night that shook with fear!”. I think Mrs. Gee looked so ridiculous, that it made everyone remember how to sing the movement!

     What makes All City Choir even more fun though is not just the singing, but the many activities and concerts we do together.

     We usually sing at a church downtown called “Colborne Church United” because our conductor Mrs. Bettker can use it for free (she goes to that church), but we’ve also sung at many other different places too. Various Nursing homes, The Education Center, Centenial Hall, Victoria Park, and we’ve even gone to Sarnia to perform with a choir there called The Kettle Creek choir. We also have lots of fun nights together too, like pizza night, get-to-know-you night, cabaret night and even a choir camp day...
