Off to State!

Congratulations to my son Jacob and Encore (auditioned mixed choir) & also the Men's ensemble, Teal Sound, on making it to State!

We have embedded an MP3 player so you can hear the songs they sang.

 If you have a short attention span, forward to 3:56 for "Il Est Belle et Bon" by Encore and to 8:15 for Teal Sound's "Tshotsholoza."

Encore (name of mixed choir you have to audition for.  Jacob sings bass.)

Song 1:    0:00 - 3:53:  "Requiem" by Eliza Gilkyson, Arranged by Craig Hella Johnson
Song 2:    3:56 - 5:23: "Il Est Bel et Bon" by Pierre Passereau

Teal Sound (name of men's choir you have to audition for.  Jacob sings bass.)

Song 3:   05:25 - 08:12: "I'm Bound Away.
Song 4:   08:15 - 10:34: "Tshotsholoza," traditional S. African Freedom Song.

The two songs after are by the school's auditioned women's group, 'Bellisima.'  We won't find out if they made State until Monday.   The two 'Bellisima' songs are: "Beau Soir" and "Dance on My Heart."
