The 2018-2019 choir is the biggest choir class New Haven High has seen. In whole, the class has completely doubled in size from last year, and because of this, you’re going to get a closer look at how the students are feeling about this change.
When asked how she’s feeling about choir this year, junior Angel Koch stated, “I’m feeling really good about it.”
Elsie McNabb, senior, commented, “I love the size and how well we harmonize.”
Kamryn Poe, senior, said, “I think this year’s choir is shaping up well. This is the biggest group we have had in choir since Mrs. Taylor started. I am excited to see where this year takes us because I think, as a group, we will be awesome!”
Kamryn continued, “I think the size is wonderful. I am happy to see so many students getting involved this year.”
Savanna Hanna, junior, responded, “The size of the class isn’t that bad. The only thing is that now that it’s a bigger class, there might be more problems within the choir. But we’re up for the challenge!”
The seniors were asked how they felt about this being their last year in choir, and their responses were immensely passionate.
Miranda Durbin commented, “It’s most definitely bittersweet. I have made so many memories in choir, and the thought of leaving a class I have grown so fond of completely crushes me. High school wasn’t meant to last forever, but sometimes, I really wish it was. I’m looking forward to conference choir and choosing a senior song. Hopefully, we can choose something meaningful to each of us.”
Desiree Strehlau mentioned, “I am really going to miss being in choir. There really is no teacher like Mrs. Taylor. I have been in choir with her for over 8 years and she has been my teacher for 12 years. I cannot wait to see what everyone selects for our senior song/gifts.”
Kamryn Poe stated, “I am so sad to be leaving choir after this year. I have had the experience of a lifetime and I have been blessed to share this experience with my other seniors. It has been a great run and I can’t wait until we all compete with each other, one last time.”
It seems like the choir class is adjusting well to the growth of students they’ve received. According to the senior class, they feel bittersweet about this being their last year and having to say goodbye in the end.
Good luck this year, seniors, and to the rest of the 2018-2019 choir class!
