Panther Choir Senior Spotlight Recap



Family, friends, and members of the Potomac Falls community gathered in the Potomac Falls choir room to celebrate the accomplishments of senior choir members at the senior spotlight concert. The concert consisted of 15 senior singers performing songs of their choice, most as solos but a few with a partner. Senior performances were interspersed with performances by the jazz choir, chamber choir, and show choir.

Seniors could choose any song they wanted to perform at the concert.  Senior Magdalena Nickle appreciated being able to choose a song from a genre she loves: jazz.

“It was so nerve wracking, but it also felt really good to express myself through a song. [Our teacher] let us pick a song we liked, so I picked Stormy Weather, which is a jazz piece, and it’s really jazzy and bluesy,” said Nickle.

For many of these seniors, this will be their last solo as a Potomac Falls choir member. Senior Basma Muhammad performed a French opera piece for her solo.

“This concert is putting the spotlight on these seniors who don’t normally have a chance to solo, and gives them a chance to show off their talents,” said Muhammad.

Between solo performances, each choir also got a chance to show off their talents. The jazz choir sang “L-O-V-E” by B. Kaemfert and M. Gabler, the Chamber Choir sang “Come Live With Me and Be My Love” by G. Gilpin, Panthera sang “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” by B. Rose and M. Taylor, and lastly, the Show Choir performed the song “Dancing Queen” from “Mamma Mia,” by the musical group ABBA.

For many senior choir singers, the Senior Spotlight Concert gave them an opportunity to share their talents with family and community members once more before they graduate. Their last performance will be the Spring Choral Concert on May 2.
