On Oct. 12, at 2:30 p.m. the gym was filled with harmonious sound of bells players and choir members. This was their first concert and their first time ever performing inside the high school gym.

“This one is the first one we’ve done in the gym, at least since I’ve been here. So it was different and it took some getting used to. But I liked the auditorium a lot better. Just seemed like a better place to have a concert,” Marisa Jones (12) said .

Even though the location was different than usual, the outcome was more than expected by many students.

“I’ve only been in choir about half a year and last time we had a concert there weren’t that many people and the amount that were here just about almost doubled I think,” Mike Kraga (11) said.

Over the past couple of years there has been a variety of themes.  Saturdays theme was Disney.  Each choir student picked a Disney character to dress up as; both levels of bells were dalmatians from the movie “101 Dalmatians.

“Compared to past concerts this one was a bit more fun because everyone gets really into the Disney theme,” Eva Kimberly (11) said.

Throughout the show there were many solos, and some of the performers were surprised that they got the part they tried out for.

“When I got [the solo] it I was actually surprised. I almost jumped out of my seat, but I just stayed calm. Then I got nervous because even though it wasn’t my first solo it was something I didn’t expect. The reason I didn’t expect it was because there are so many great singers in my choir,” Hannah Scherer (12) said.

The next holiday concert will be held in the Lake Central gym on Sunday, Dec. 14, at 2:30 p.m.
