WORTHINGTON — The choirs of Worthington High School (WHS), under the direction of Kerry Johnson, perform their annual spring pops concert Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the WHS gymnasium.
“This is a concert the students really embrace as a fun tradition,” said Johnson. “It’s a celebration of the end of our year and typically features lighter, more contemporary music.”
The combined choirs will sing “Somebody to Love,” a tune by Freddie Mercury of Queen, while the Trojan Choir will present a medley of Carrie Underwood hits.
The Worthington Concert Choir will deliver the Bon Jovi classic “Livin’ on a Prayer” while the select Trojan Express ensemble will share “Breathe In, Breathe Out” as arranged by WHS senior Brandon Berger.
Bel Canto, the select girls’ group, is slated to sing some tunes from ABBA’s “Mamma Mia,” and the select boys’ chorus, VOX, is planning a contemporary medley. Other concert features include a senior slideshow and a “year in pictures” retrospective.
On May 15, the WHS choir students will sing the Canadian national anthem “O Canada” prior to the 1:10 p.m. start of the Minnesota Twins vs. the Toronto Blue Jays baseball game at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Monday’s 7:30 p.m. concert at WHS is free and open to the public.
