With the end of another trimester, West Choirs hosted their annual Spring Choral Concert. The concert took place in the Arganbright Auditorium May 9 and was filled with performances of pieces from French songs to Irish songs to songs in English too.

The night kicked off with West Treble choir’s set where they performed “Big Sky” Amy F. Bernon and “Oye” by Jim Papoulis. Bass Choir followed up with “Tshotsholoza” a traditional South African song and “Dos Oruguitas” from Disney’s “Encanto.”

Following the two performances, Virtuosa took the stage with Dolly Parton’s “Clear Blue Morning” and a French song called “Dirait-On.” They then sang “Mouth Music” by Dolores Keane and John Faulker. Virtuosa ended their set with “Show Me Love” which they perform at the spring concert each year.

The audience then welcomed West Singers to end the show with “My Spirit Sang All Day” by Gerald Finzi and “Earth Song” by Frank Tichelli. The choir ended their set with “Sing Me to Heaven” by Daniel Gawthrop. All four choirs combined to end the night with West High’s Alma Matter, “Hymm to the Green and the Gold.”
