​Middle School and High School Choirs Perform a Diverse Winter Concert

​Middle School and High School Choirs Perform a Diverse Winter Concert


The Harmonic Chargers and Charger Voices collaborated for a song during their concert.

On Mon., Dec. 16, the middle school choir joined forces with the CTA Charger Voices (high school choir) for their first concert of the 2019-20 school year. The show kicked off with a performance of ​Once Upon a December​ from the animated film ​Anastasia​. This was followed by a performance of the holiday rhythmic song ​Yuletide Rhythm.​ In preparation for this concert, the middle school choir students, along with some guidance from their director, came up with their own choreography for ​Yuletide Rhythm​. Mr. Morlan even joined in on the fun, pulsing time with a large set of sleigh bells.

After a quick transition, the Charger Voices took the stage. They opened with the slow, flowing song ​The Snow Begins to Fall​. An interesting chance that the group took on this song was that certain members of the choir sang a different vocal part than what they would normally to meet the demands of the SATB writing. The choir quickly brought the energy back up with the hit song “Seize the Day” from Disney’s ​Newsies​.

To conclude the winter program, the middle school and high school groups collaborated to perform a moving rendition of the poem ​In Flanders Fields​. This work pays tribute to the lives lost in the horrors of World War One, and has been set to music by many different composers. Accompanied only by a very simple piano part played by Mr. Morlan, the group sang lusciously and full. The final song of the evening was the holiday classic ​Carol of the Bells​. Carrying on the old CTA tradition, the Fine Arts department was excited to welcome back alumni members Tobias Potter, Thomas McKiney, Violet Sidlauskas, and Autumn Watson. Mr. Morlan assures all that this tradition will continue, and hopes to have more and more alumni members return to the CTA concert stage every year.
