Great end to year


May 22, 2014
More than 30 solos are to be performed by Grosse Pointe South High School choir members during the choir's annual three day Broadway extravaganza at 7 p.m. May 29 through 31 at the Grosse Pointe North Performing Arts Center.

The solos are divided between the three nights to give the graduating seniors a chance to say goodbye after hundreds of hours of practice, performance and competition during the past four years.

Highlights include the senior solos, a nightly performance by a senior men ensemble, a senior women group, the varsity-level Pointe Singers, the Tower Belles, the South Singers and the Sounds of South.

Choir director Christopher Pratt, finishing his second year at South, said the concerts will include a variety of songs and entertainment despite some inevitable sadness.

"It's definitely a bittersweet show for many of us who have known and loved these kids through the years," he said. "Either way, it's a great way to end the year and send them on to the next stage of their lives. It's also our last opportunity to showcase and celebrate a truly talented class."

The South choir program consists of four levels of performers, including Sounds of South, South Singers and the varsity-level Tower Belles and Pointe Singers.

Tower Belles and Pointe Singers both earned high honors in show choir competitions last year and the Ambassador Choir performed in London and Paris in February.
