The TJ students began the show with voices bigger than themselves, which melted the hearts of all parents in the audience. Harbison, cheerfully leading them in songs like, “Solfeggio XVIII”, “Siyahamba”, “Guacamole!”, and “The Water is Wide,” set the show off right, the attention went to the students of MEH.
Then to take the stage was the fifth grade chorus, excited and ready to go. They sang the popular song, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” and then, “Go for Baroque,” and “Bubble Trouble.”
Sixth graders came on next, and showed their colors. Singing “Je Danse La Polka,” “Doctor Jazz,” and “Blowin’ in the Wind,” with a solo from student, Roisin O’Dawd, they truly blew away the audience.
The seventh grade made their presence known by singing, “Michael Finnigan,” “The Trout (Die Forelle),” and “Java Jive” with solos from Melanie Black, Westley Casper, and Ruthie Miller.
George Mason’s Chamber Singers, entertained the audience with, “Sing We and Chant It,” “The Silver Swan,” and “Finale from The Gondoliers.”
The singers were then joined by the whole choir and showed the audience what they were about. All of the high school choirs sang the Latin piece, “Cantate Domino,” followed by, “With the Voice of Singing,” and the Spanish song “Yo Le Canto Todo El Dia.”
The night was ended with all the choirs joining their voices for the finale, “You’ve Got a Friend” with Harbison directing and Glass accompanying on the piano. At the end all Glass could say was, “It was a great night, they all did really well, I couldn’t have asked for more.”
