ChoralFestival2017066The combined choirs of DelavanDarien Schools performed together for the first time last night on the DDHS auditorium stage. The DelavanDarien School District Choir Festival was a collaborative effort by the elementarymiddle school and high school choral music teachersMs. BergMs. GuzmanMs. RopersRosendahl and Mr. Larson. The concert began with the 4th and 5th grade Honor choir from Darien Elementary directed by Ms. Guzman and Ms. Berg. Thenthe Phoenix Singersdirected by Ms. RopersRosendahl took the stage followed by the Lydian choir from the high school. These choirs are filled with the very best vocalists in our schools. It was powerful when all three choirs joined their voices for the finalea rousing rendition of the song OYEsung entirely in Spanish. This song comes from Acapulcowhere inner city children were asked what they wanted to convey to the world in a song. Their answer was simple to listen. Listening in English translates into Oye in Spanish. Our audience was privileged to listen to these excellent voices in concert and look forward to the second annual DDSD Choir Festival next spring.
