The West Liberty Junior High and High School choirs performed in a holiday “Cocoa and Carols” concert on Sunday in the high school auditorium in front of a full audience. Director Nathan Shivers said the turn out was great. “With almost 200 kids singing, the auditorium was full with standing room only,” he said.
The Vocal Harmony, which is a select choir of 16 high school students, started the concert by singing Christmas carols. The seventh-grade choir followed with “Alleluia” and “Mele Kalikimaka.” The eighth-grade boys trio, Joe Baker, Luke Dennis and Darnell Phouapadith, sang “Silent Night.” The eighth-grade choir sang “Sing We Now, Rejoice” and “Joy to the World.” The Concert Choir, which is mostly 11th and 12th grade students sang “Home for the Holidays,” with a solo by Grace Millage, and “Grown Up Christmas List,” with a solo by Carrie Heick. The Chorale, which is mostly ninth and 10th-grade students, sang “Bidi Bom,” “Hope is Born Again,” with a solo by Ina Haskell and Randy Tapia, “Believe,” and “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” The concert ended with the Concert Choir singing “Sparklejollytwinkeljingley,” from the Broadway musical Elf.
