Members from Wolverine Singers, Madrigals and Vocal Ensemble showcased their voices during Middle School Vocal Solo Show. The event was held at the Saperstein Theatre on March 5. Students each picked songs ranging from the popular “All I Ask” by Adele to “La Vie en Rose,” a French song originally performed by Edith Piaf.
The artists spent a lot time working together, and they also got to have individual lessons to perfect their songs.
“We would go in with [Choir Director Nina] Burtcheall and [Middle School Accompanist Christopher] Wong and sing it for them. We also worked with a vocal coach named Clark Harris who helped us with choreography and voice technique,” Scarlett Strasberg ’20 said.
The show featured artists who had performed in the show before as well as artists who sang in the show last year.
“I was so excited to perform and be there in front of so many people because you don’t get a lot of opportunities to do that. This was also very nerve-wracking. Singing in front of so many people can be scary because you always have that feeling that you are not going to do well,” Alexandra DuManoir ’21 said.
Students said that the environment during the show was very supportive. Artists voiced that they were thankful and excited to have a place to share their talent and be supportive of each other.
“I was most excited about singing my song because I have worked very hard on it, and I was ready to perform it in front of everyone,” Alec Davila ’20 said.
