The superb Voices of Wilson (VOW) had a show stopper first performance.
The Voices of Wilson hosted its annual fall concert of the 2021-2022 school year on Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. Tickets were sold for $5. Due to COVID, the concert had to be relocated outside to the amps.
According to Vice President of Activities Serena Yang, many changes had to be made for the concert.
“Preparing for our first concert after the pandemic was definitely stressful. The preparation period of learning music required a lot of practice and work after being virtual for an entire year. Students, and myself included, were so used to singing in our rooms through Zoom that singing in the choir room seemed so foreign,” said Yang.
Despite the struggles, Yang concludes that the concert “was successful and a great way to start off the year.”
“We had a large crowd despite the chilly weather. The large turnout was heartwarming to see as a performer. I think the audience also found comfort watching our performance after so much time away because of the pandemic,” Yang said.
When asked to comment on their experience, choir member Caleb Quinia shares their two ways to prepare.
“I try to always practice in rehearsals the way I want to perform. Outside of rehearsals, I review the notes,” Quinia said.
Quinia also adds, “knowing that I had my section and my choir with me, there was no reason to be nervous.”
You can look forward to the VOW’s Winter Concert on Dec. 7. So save the date because you will not want to miss this performance!
