Vocal Music’s Fall Concert is a success

Vocal Music's Fall Concert is a success


There were no sparkly red dresses or vests. There were no props. There was just one piano and over 100 high school vocal music students dressed in black and white, singing to an audience full of their friends and family.

Last night was the first vocal music concert of the year. A few very recognizable songs were performed, such as the Star Spangled Banner and the Duncan High School Alma Mater. The audience remained standing during these two songs along with the high schoolers on stage.

Several genres of songs were performed including an classical piece featuring solos by junior Mackenzie Cook and senior Emma Thomas, and a throwback song called “Shut De Do” that was performed when Jimmy Zinn was in charge of vocal music, featuring a solo by senior Jordan Santos.

“Shut De Do” was junior Chorale member Fisher Anderson’s favorite song that he sang that night. Anderson enjoys being a part of the Duncan High School vocal music program.

“I love to sing and entertain,” he said.

Vocal music director Kevin Zinn said at the concert that they had a shorter amount of time to prepare for it this year than in previous years.

He explained that “due to how the calendar fell this year” they only had about three weeks to prepare instead of the normal four.

Overall, senior Reflections member Kamrin Gay felt that the concert went well despite this shortened preparation time.

“I feel that with the time crunch we did really well,” she said.

Gay enjoys the bonding experience that comes with being a part of Reflections. She said that the new juniors in Reflections did really well for it being their first concert as a part of the show choir.

The next vocal music concert is going to be at 7:30 on Dec. 8 in the auditorium.
