The 7th Annual Rock and Roll Choir Show was held on Tuesday, February 25, 2014.
The music department at Snow College compiled this concert. The A Cappella Choir and Cadence were the two highlighted choirs of the night and throughout the concert, two other groups joined them. Phat Old Professors was the first group. It is made up of professors from Snow College.
The Skinny Young Students were next on the program. This is a group of students at Snow College with some incredible musical talent. The horn section that joined the choral students during some of the classic rock songs and Dr. Madeline LeBaron, who had an amazing clarinet solo.
The night was filled with an assortment of energetic songs from some classic rock artists such as Queen, the Eagles, the Beatles, Styx, Chicago, Kansas, and others. The audience cheered and enjoyed every moment of being involved with the concert by clapping and whistling to rhythmic beats.
The choirs were very enthusiastic and all looked bright with their different colored shirts and big smiles. “‘Carry on My Wayward Son’ was my favorite part; it was so rad!” stated Maddie Barker, freshman at Snow College.
The Skinny Young Students added some humor to the show by stuffing material up their shirts in order to impersonate their fellow performers, The Phat Old Professors. That act definitely got the audience laughing and ready to enjoy their medley of Van Halen’s “Jump” and Styx’s “Eruption.”
After an evening of incredible vocals and musical talent, the combined choirs and other band members performed a phenomenal version of “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey, ending the concert with an amazing blast. An encore was given to this excellent performance that brought back all of our best memories with some classic rock music.
