Choir students at Greeley West presented “Hits Night on Broadway” last Wednesday in the auditorium, their first performance of the year.

Spartones, Pegasus and the other groups performed big numbers from known musicals. Ms. Hannah Webster chose the particular songs because it gives a light and fun vibe for the singers and the audience.

“There are a lot of beginners and they’ve never experienced this kind of setting before. I want to keep them interested in the group with simple but challenging songs,” Webster stated.

Piano player Dr. Charlotte Mills accompanied the whole show along with help from senior Vincentius Farnando on bass guitar, sophomore Liam Garcia on electric guitar, and sophomore Evan DeMeyer on drums.

Pegasus started off the show with a Grease Medley. The group did some choreography while singing and they relied on the music to keep the beat. The girls dressed in pink shirts and the boys dressed in black ones, making it look more like the time period of that musical. Junior Gabriel Ramsey did a solo in the middle of the show and left the audience clapping and cheering.

Sophomore Patrick Hincks got a chance to perform a solo with In Summer from the popular children’s movie Frozen. He said he felt very confident with the majority of his solo except for the ending, but he was able to get through it. He says he was probably chosen as a soloist because of his confident voice and how he’s able to project. “I was able to choose my own solo but, it was difficult because there was so much music I want to do,” Hincks said.

Towards the end of the show, senior Keanna Hegwood performed a solo from one of her favorite musicals as a child: The Phantom of The Opera. It wasn’t difficult for her to pick that song because she’s loved it since she was young. “Going into my solo, I was very nervous because performing is nerve racking but in the end, it’s rewarding. Afterwards, I felt relieved but proud,” Hegwood stated.

Junior Victoria Alvarado, part of the Pegasus choir, stated that the concert went very well. She prepared for the show by occupying any of her free time by practicing and took everything in class seriously. “There were things that could have been improved, but that’s with any performance,” Alvarado said.

The second to last song, sophomore Dustin Griess and Lucas Saylor performed a duet with Travel Song from the Shrek musical. Griess portrayed Donkey while Saylor portrayed Shrek himself, both of them putting on ears and tails.

The show was concluded with the choirs coming together and performing I’m A Believer from Shrek. The students filled up the whole stage, impressing the audience.
