Fall Choir Concert Exceeds Expectations

Catherine Chaves
The Eagle High Choir performed at the cafeteria on Oct. 3. The preformance was for a fundraiser for their program.

The fall choir concert is the first concert that the Eagle High choral union performed, and it was a fundraiser in order to raise money for the program. It was held in the Eagle High social center on Oct. 3.

“Fall concert is a fundraiser that hosts many auctions for dessert and other amazing prizes,” said senior and assistant conductor Olivia Glisson. “Choirs showcase their talent and enjoy each other’s company alongside their family.”

At this concert, the students of different choirs prepared to perform their first songs of the year in order to show family, friends and other visitors how well they sound. Teacher Seth McMullen is in charge of the choirs and enables them to enjoy their work while encouraging them.

“He is always pushing us towards success, while having fun with us at the same time,” said senior and member of the Eagle High choral union Lunden Wilkinson about McMullen. “The amount of effort he pours into us is so positive an encouraging.”

Parents and students also contributed to this concert by bringing donations, in this case desserts, for the dessert dash where each table put money in an envelope. The table that donated the most money in their envelope got to pick their dessert first. Each table had 20 seconds before the next table got to get their dessert going in order of who raised the most money.

“It creates a really fun dynamic within a table group,” said senior and member of the Eagle High choral union Ellektra Klein. “You get to be excited to have dessert with people after you fought to have the dessert you wanted.”

The concert ended up raising more money than anticipated—more than $20,000—and all of the money will go toward improving the choral program and many other aspects of it for the benefit of the students.
