Band, choir practice for concert

The Seward band and choir winter concert will feature mostly Christmas songs at the performance 7 p.m. Dec. 11 at the Showcase Theater. “This year’s choir is doing great. They have eaten through everything. There are more music readers so they are learning things very fast and they sound amazing”, said Magda Silva, vocal music instructor. According to Silva, SCCC/ATS Show Choir this year is really an a cappella choir. The students found songs they wanted to do, and they broke them down. “It’s a tight group,” said Silva. The theme for SCCC/ATS band is also Christmas music. For the winter concert it is really hard get away from that theme. “I choose the music by knowing the playing level of my students. I have some very talented musicians in band this semester”, said Darin Workman, instrumental music instructor. “The students are doing a great job so far in rehearsal. They are a very energetic group. We have a lot of fun in rehearsal,” Workman added.
