Choir Happening A Success


One hundred and thirty students from the White Hall High School Choir program took the stage Saturday night at the Pine Bouff Convention Center to present the 2014 Choir Happening: “Heroes and Villains.”

The show opended with a classy rendition of the James Bond theme perpormed by the combined concert and madrigal choirs.

The freshmen were a ghoulish site as they danced and sang the Bobby Picket classic “Monster Mash.”

Spiderman tumbled across the stage as the sophmore choir presented a swinging version of the old Spderman theme song. THere were comedic numbers like Men in Tights as well as beautiful renditions of True Colors and Over the Rainbow.

The senior class moved the audeice with a powerful performance of Go the Distance from Hercules. And, to bring the show to a dramatic conclusion, the choir presented a medley of numbers from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

“It is largely due to the tireless efforts of our students and choir parents that we are able to produce a show of this quality” said the choir’s director, Jonathon Barrano.

That, combined with stunning choreography by Dorothy Soto and Tana Soto Cook, professional sound design by Sound Video Services Incorporated, art work by John Bownam and the White Hall High School art department, and inspired lighting designed by Sandy and Roy Owen, ensured the performance was a rousing success.
