What: Davis High School Pops Concert, featuring the Concert Choir, Advanced Treble Choir and Madrigal Singers

When: 7 p.m. Thursday, May 29

Where: Brunelle Performance Hall, DHS, 315 W. 14th St.

Tickets: $5, available at the door

The Davis High School Concert Choir, Advanced Treble Choir and Madrigal Singers will mix old-time favorites and new pop songs in their last formal concert of the year at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 29, in the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS. Spring Pops Concert tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door.

Senior Julia Gladding looks toward the concert with excitement and a little impending gloom. Gladding can’t wait to see what the future holds for her in college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, but will miss the friends and memories she experienced singing with the ATC for the past three years.

“Performing for the last time as a part of DHS is definitely bittersweet. I am sad that this is the last time I will sing for DHS alongside some of my best friends,” Gladding said. “However, this performance is a chance for me to look back on the past three years as a member of ATC and reminisce about the incredible experiences and memories I have made that will last a lifetime.”

Involvement in a musical group directly contributed to Gladding’s development as a musician and pupil.

“My time in choir has made me a better student,” she said. “Having a music class really rounds out my day; singing is a nice break from concentrating solely on academics. It brings me so much joy to have a class period where I get to sing alongside a room full of incredible friends.

“I have become a better musician thanks to a daily opportunity to sing under the direction of Mrs. (Karen) Gardias and alongside other talented musicians.”

Senior Megan Wong also has reaped the benefits of a caring choir community. Almost like a support group, Wong depends on the ATC girls for everything from laughs to encouragement.

“My choir is very supportive, and their determination to always try their best inspires me to work hard,” she said. “Although long rehearsals after school are wearisome, I’m always eager to attend them because my choir’s enthusiasm always puts a smile on my face! I feel excited and sad at the same time for this to be the last time I will be performing with such a phenomenal group of girls.”

The encouraging environment offered at these DHS choir groups is a main incentive for new students to apply. Many gaps are waiting to be filled after the seniors head off to college.

“If you’re interested in joining next year I think the Pops Concert is a great showcase of the type of genres we like to sing and the type of people involved in choir,” Wong said. “People will be singing different arrangements of fun and current songs.”
