On Friday, April 28, the Dyersburg Middle School and High School choirs hosted their annual Spring Concert. The middle school sang four songs and the high school sang eight. Each choir had a number of students accepted into the All Northwest Honor choir.
The middle school choir sang “Budapest” by George Ezra, “Stay” by Rihanna, “All of Me” by John Legend and “Oceans” by Matt Crocker. This was the first year that Mr. Davis, the choir teacher at both the high school and middle school, allowed sixth grade students to join the choir, and he expressed how much he enjoyed it. Different levels of stage platforms decorated the stage as choir members stood at various heights on the stage.
The high school freshman choir and the high school honor choir had not prepared together before the night of the concert; they had always practiced separately up until that point. The groups came together and sang “Writings on the Wall” by Sam Smith, “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin, “Jar of Hearts” by Christina Perri, “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson, “House of Gold” by 21 Pilots, “Renegades” by The Ambassadors, “Water Under the Bridge” by Adele and “Tonight” by Hot Chelle Rae.
The concert was the final concert for DHS seniors in the choir. Seniors Kacey Baker, Levi Holbrook, Billy Bona, Madison Funderburk, Sarah Owens, Tyler Lloyd, Alex Diaz, Kaaliyah Moses and Melinda Roddey were recognized for their involvement with the choir throughout the years.
