Choral Festival Honors Choir 21 February
Tuesday evening, February 21, Peru State College hosted the Choral Festival Honor Choir, featuring members of the Peru State College Choirs and Select high School Students.
Over one-hundred and eighty high school students took part in this years festival, the fourteenth.
The first set of photographs reflect what goes on during the day, for students arrive from area high schools to practice all day for their evening concert. After practicing in the theater seats, the singers take the stage at 3:30 in the afternoon.
The second set of images comes from the evening performance, which includes the Peru State College Misty Blues Show Choir and the Honor Choir.
For your viewing enjoyment, watch the video of the Misty Blues performance of "Oye La Musica" and "Jailhouse Rock."
After the Misty Blues warmed up the large audience, the Honor Choir took the stage to cap off their day-long experience at Peru State College.
To appreciate the wonderful conclusion to this day on which everyone connected with the projected worked many hours, watch the video of the Honor Choir's performance of "Choose Something Like a Star," based on a poem by Robert Frost, and "Gentle Annie," a Stephen Foster song that features a solo by Auburn High School student Kendall Victor, daughter of PSC student Jaymi Victor.
