Sixth, seventh and eighth grade choir students presented a spring concert Thursday evening at San Rafael Middle School.
With nearly 40 students in each class, Mr. Ben Carroll conducted three choirs and then combined them for a final number. The largest choir, sixth grade, performed four numbers with Mr. Carroll accompanying them on the final one, “Lift Up Your Hearts and Voices.”
The seventh grade choir was divided with the boys singing “Blow Ye Winds” and then the girls joined to perform an Israeli song entitled “Dodi Li.” A girls’ choir of seventh and eight grade students sang ”The Arrow and The Song” followed by the entire eighth grade choir.
All three grades’ choirs then combined for the final number entitled “We Are The Ones.”
Soloists for the evening in the seventh grade included Cheyenne Bingham, Joey Leonard, Monty Christiansen, Carsen Childs, Tyler Frandsen, Kina Jewkes, Amy Sorensen, Sara Stevens and Audrey Yost. Eighth grade soloists performing with the choirs were Sally Butcher, Jacob Fauver, Jayston Justesen, Novalee LeRoy, Amanda Perry, Sean Rogers, Ashlynn Russell, Shaylie Udovich and Brylie Bennett.
