The holidays may have passed, but the cheer is still in the air with 2019 just beginning. At MV, this is mostly thanks to the MVHS choir for putting on a terrific show for their winter choir concert, dubbed the MVHS Celebration of Peace.

This evening concert on December 18th was wonderful. Before entering the auditorium, there were baked goods sold outside of the cafeteria for only $1 a piece. The profits of these went toward the choirs, with treats varying from cupcakes to chocolate dipped pretzels. All were very festive and tasty desserts.

The concert itself was incredible as well. There were jazzy tunes such as “Run, Run, Rudolph” performed by MV Singers and slower songs that were breathtaking like “Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind,” an old English song performed by the Chamber Singers.

Other choirs that performed in this concert included the Women’s Chorus, Locked Out Acapella, and the Men of Mt. Vernon.

This choir show was not the only thing that was great. The reactions and feelings of the choir students about their concert was amazing as well.

“I am proud to have been with such a wonderful choir for the past three years,” said Jacob Crow, 12. “I am so thankful to be performing this last winter concert with the people who have changed my life for the better.”

Other students had similar feelings.

“I was excited for this concert because I love singing Christmas music with all of my friends, especially my senior friends,” Mallory McKeeman, 11. “I had mixed feelings though since this was my last winter concert with them.”

Though members of the MV community may have missed out on this concert, there is still a chance to see these students sing their hearts out once more this school year. Next up is the jazz concert “Swinging the Night Away” on February 22nd at 7 pm.
