The first performance of the year for the Merit College Preparatory Academy Concert Choir went swimmingly, garnering what could have been the largest crowd at the Springville Heritage Days’ outdoor performance area, where such people as a duet of bagpipers and a small group of our own choir members (before and after respectively) performed. The roster of the songs was as follows, in order: Utah, We Love Thee , which is Utah’s state song, Nelly Bly, a lively dancing song about a man who loves a woman, as so many songs are, Home Again, a cheerfully solemn song about a man who returns home after a period across the sea to find that things aren’t quite aren’t as they were before he left. Ending the program was an arrangement of a song made famous in 1852, fame of which lasts to this day, Camptown Races, which is about a day at the horse races. The choir was arranged with the members sorted into sections, which are as such (assuming you were up there, looking down at the audience): altos to the right hand side, tenors in the front row, in the middle, basses in the middle, behind the tenors, and sopranos on the left hand side. Nelly Bly was the most favored of the songs sung at the program. Being a lively dance song, many of the members of the audience clapped along with the singers, adding to the joyful mood of the song. Overall, the Concert Choir did well for a first performance, and this reporter looks forward to see what is in store for the future of concerts. Author Brandon NayJewell Editor Mrs. Limb
