On Thursday, March 29 a crowd of choir students excitedly traveled over to the Salem High school for a high level singing competition. This year the Chamber Singers Festival would be judged by Mr. Bills; the SHHS choir director. Originally only the Chamber singers themselves were supposed to go, but because Women's Chorus was so advanced they came as well. Once we arrived we sat in the high school auditorium to watch other choirs preform. Jr. High's from all over the district came to show off their best choirs. The Salem Jr. Women's Chorus was third to perform. They sang The Voice, Dirai-ton, and Kaki Lambe. Their performance was amazing. Salem Jr. Chamber Singers were the last to perform. We sang O Sifuni Mungu, Earth Song, and Let Everything that Hath Breath. The audience gave us a standing ovation! Both Women's Chorus and Chamber Singers received a Superior rating and great comments from the judge. They thoroughly enjoyed this event and look forward to it next year!
