Audience members of every age enjoyed Liberty Christian’s Chorale concert “Oldies but Goodies” last Monday, Oct. 28. From Lower School students to grandparents were seen clapping and singing along with the student musicians who were onstage.

Songs included a student barbershop quartet singing “Honey/Little ’Lize Medley,” a Chorale group of girls performing, “Lollipop,” and for the grande finale, all Chorale students singing “Grease Medley.”

“I am very proud of our singers, who stepped out of their comfort zones to sing solos and learn dance choreography for this performance,” said Daniel Montgomery, Chorale Director.

Audience members saw Chorale in 1950-style colorful costumes, from girls in poodle skirts to boys in jeans and leather jackets. “Elvis” was even seen onstage singing his solo, “Hound Dog.”

“With our students performing musicals, I am offering programs that require not only singing, but also acting and dancing as well,” Montgomery said. “Students were really challenged from an acting standpoint with our ‘Les Miserables’ medley last year, and it proved to be a success.

“The ‘Grease Medley’ in our ‘Oldies but Goodies’ concert was equally challenging on the dance side, but our Chorale members rose to the occasion and had a lot of fun.”

Chorale now begins to prepare for its Christmas concert with Liberty’s band members that will be held Saturday, Dec. 14. The concert is free and open to the public.
