Solo concert show give kids an audience

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Music teacher Tim Patrick knows his Granville High School students get plenty of chances to sing together, so he’s now asking them to go out on their own.

Patrick is planning a free community concert at 7 p.m., Monday, April 30, in the high school auditorium. The “Solos Concert” will mark the first time GHS students have had a solo-only concert.

“I wanted to give the kids some more experience in soloing,” Patrick said. “This is the first year. We want to start building soloists, besides have good choruses, and this is a great chance to get students starter on this. It will give us better soloists in the future.”

Patrick is also adding a community-service component to the concert, which will benefit the Haynes House of Hope in South Granville. Those attending the conference are asked to bring in supplies requested by Haynes House. These include facial tissue, rice, coffee, baby wipes and copy paper.

Other items needed include gift cards from Price Chopper and Staples, sugar packets, paper plates, tape, unscented dishwasher soap and laundry detergent, nonlatex gloves, broth, bleach, white vinegar and tall kitchen garbage bags.

The concert is expected to include between 20 and 30 students, ranging from skilled performers to those who are new to singing solos.

“It’s really quite a varied group,” Patrick said. “We’ve got experienced and inexperienced people. After a while, this will give me more experienced people.”

Some of the songs students are planning to perform are “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “Imagine,” “For Good,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “Maria,” “Hero,” “One and Only,” and “People Will Say We’re In Love.”
