WHS choirs to perform in Monday spring pops concert
WORTHINGTON -- Under the direction of Kerry Johnson, the Worthington High School (WHS) Trojan and Concert choirs will perform their annual Spring Pops Concert in the WHS gymnasium at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
There are approximately 115 student singers in the two groups.
"The pops concert is a little different because it is largely programmed by the kids and is made up of all popular songs," explained Johnson. "It features a small combo -- piano, bass, drums and guitar -- and it gives the students a chance to do their own kind of music for one performance."
The combined choirs will open the concert with the current hit "Some Nights." One of the Concert Choir's selections is "Chasing Cars," a 2006 song recorded by the group Snow Patrol, while the Trojan Choir's pieces include "Little Things."
Also featured are the school's three select choral ensembles, VOX, Trojan Express and Bel Canto.
The all-male VOX will sing "For the Longest Time" and "Accidentally in Love," with the all-female Bel Canto sharing a medley from the movie "Pitch Perfect." Trojan Express will deliver "Home," a number popularized by American Idol finalist Phillip Phillips.
Seniors in the choir will be recognized at the concert, and end-of-year choral awards will be presented.
