Choir bids farewell to 35 seniors

Focused mostly on the seniors, OHS choir hosted the annual Senior Farewell Concert on Monday, May 8, at the Nottelmann Auditorium.

The choir program honored the 35 seniors leaving the program. There were performances made by each choir along with seven “Senior Spotlight” performances, featuring several solos. Each senior that performed a solo in the concert auditioned for the part.

“We have a lot of amazing seniors,” said Mrs. Chelsa Ayers, OHS assistant vocal director. “They rock; they have had an amazing year.”

Ronni Jones (12), who received a Maestro award at the recent World Strides national festival, performed with her parents calling it the Jones Family Trio. They sang a song that was originally by the Martins, a family that sings together.

“I wanted to sing with my parents,” said Jones. “Gospel is a great way to display family harmony.”

Alec Lininger (12) performed a solo to the song “My Way” by Frank Sinatra. Lininger has a tradition of listening to Frank Sinatra before every choir concert.

“I chose ‘My Way’ because it’s about the end of things, and it was my last choir concert,” Lininger said.

Overall, according to many in attendance, the concert was definitely one of the best in the history of senior farewells.
