BYMS Vocal Ensemble was awarded a Superior, the highest award, at the annual judging this school year. Multiple choirs gathered together at Ladera Vista Middle School of the Arts to perform in front of one another and take constructive criticism from two adjudicators.
They performed three diverse pieces for the judges. Vocal Ensemble took the stage with Inimici Autem, an acapella song sung in latin. Next, they performed “Oceans and Stars,” a song VE have performed for various concerts before this occasion, sang in english. Lastly, “Morokeni,” a greeting song inspired by African culture and a type of singing called Call-and-Response, brought the house down.
Vocal Ensemble can’t wait for what is to come with next year’s choir and what the judges will give them! This year our choir’s final score was 3.82.
