River Dell Elementary Chorus performed their Showcase of the Stars music during a combined concert at Corinth Holders High School on Thursday, Feb. 28.
RDE performed their songs “Stories of my Life” and “Seize the Day” at the show. Students performed choreography with both songs. “Stories of my Life” is a song that uses familiar book titles for the lyrics and students held the book up as the lyric was sang. “Seize the Day” is from the stage musical ‘Newsies’ and RDE chorus performed it with CHHS Chorus students as the finale song to the concert.
“The students did great,” RDE music teacher Rachel Holmes said. “The performance for ‘Stories of my Life’ was even better on stage than I hoped it would be.”
On March 9, the RDE Chorus participated in the “Showcase of the Stars” at Smithfield-Selma High school where they did a great job there as well.
“We are proud of all of our performers,” RDE Principal Chad Jewett said. “They have all worked very hard, and we are proud of Mrs. Holmes and all the work she has put into our chorus.”
