Hundreds of voices were ringing on Thursday, February 13th at Greenville College. BHS choir students made the trip to campus to merge together with eleven other school districts for an all day rehearsal. Joining the schools were members of the Greenville College Choir and Chorale. Dr. Jeffrey S. Wilson directed the choirs, preparing and teaching the young singers.

A finale concert was given at 6:30 in the evening for invited guests. The show opened with four songs by the college students. Then, HS choir members joined to perform four pieces. Singers were challenged with new languages, as the song “Ubi caritas” was sung entirely in Latin, “Noel” entirely in the African dialect Kituba, and “Journey Home” partially in Spanish.

Brownstown’s music and band director, Miss Houghtaling, accompanied and assisted teens throughout the day. Students who attended the music festival were Danielle Austin, Jacob Bloemker, Katie Carson, Mathew DuFaux, Kyrstyn Fitch, Kayla Haslett, Hannah Koehler, Nancy McCurley, Sydney Rosborough, Alisa Rush, Mary Schilling, Brittany Siebert, Shawnee Street, and Melissa Wiley.
