CTA’s Charger Voices had the opportunity to participate in the Michigan School Vocal Music Association (MSVMA) District Festival for the first time in March. This was the first year for the choir to do so and the experience was a very successful and enjoyable one. Charger Voices was the first performing group of the day, performing at 8:00 a.m. The group performed two songs, “Jonah” by Rollo Dilworth and “River, Sing Your Song” by Eugene Butler. After the performance, an adjudicator came onto the stage and worked with the group on things they could improve. Choir members were appreciative of the feedback and enjoyed trying the different things the adjudicator coached them on. The second part of the festival was sight reading, during which the students had to sight read music that they had never seen before and only had twenty minutes to do so before performing the piece. The experience was challenging, yet rewarding. As an added bonus after the festival, students got to spend the remainder of the day at Craig’s Cruisers. The day was a very positive experience and students were already excited to participate next year.
