Upper school choirs sing popular hits

Chronicle Staff

About 50 singers in the Upper School choruses performed on May 22 and 23 for their Spring Choral Concert, with the theme “It’s a Grand Night for Singing.”

The Wolverine Chorus, Chamber Singers and the Bel Canto choirs performed.

Michelle Spears was choreographer of the concert, and Rodger Guerrero conducted.

The senior singers sang “I Was Here” as a salute to their time here at Harvard-Westlake.

“This concert was so diverse in its music, and it was very enjoyable for both the audience and the performers,” Jillian Sanders ’17 said.

The concert featured classical songs for the first half of the performance and modern cabaret-style songs in the second half.

The singers were first dressed in traditional choir attire but later changed into T-shirts.

“There was something for everyone, which gave me a chance to connect with the audience on any given song,” Sanders said. “So I think it made it a lot more fun and special, given that it was our last concert of the year.”
