A Harmonious Evening to Remember: The Lampeter-Strasburg District Chorus Concert

On March 14th, 2024, Lampeter-Strasburg High School hosted the District Chorus Concert. Students from 4th to 12th grade performed captivating songs, and the auditorium was packed full of friends and family members who came to watch the performance. 

Preparation for the concert was a long process, but a much needed one. No one knew how to sing the songs in the beginning, but after several rehearsals and time to fix the small details, they got to the level they performed at on the 14th. 

The evening started off with the youngest singers of the night: the 4th and 5th graders. Their performance was followed by the Martin Meylin Madrigal singers and chorus, followed by the High School Madrigals and chorus. To end the evening, all groups joined on stage to perform “Ad Astra” together, a beautiful piece consisting of Latin and English lyrics. The song received a standing ovation from many members of the audience. 

“I think it was a beautiful event,” stated James Appelgrijn, a junior in the High School Madrigals and chorus. “All three schools coming together in harmony, singing the songs, hundreds of voices combining to form this beautiful melody! There’s nothing like it.” Appelgrijn then went on to explain how it wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing directors who bring it all together. 

The performers weren’t the only ones who had something to say. One member of the audience stated, “The concert was beautiful. It was wonderful to see all the schools perform together and see all the amazing talent in our school district.”
