DHS vocal music department to present fall concert Monday Oct 17
The Decorah High School Vocal Music Department will present a fall choral concert at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, October 17 in the DHS auditorium. The concert will begin with Ninth Grade Treble Clef Choir singing a setting of “Rise Up, My Love,” an arrangement of “Danny Boy,” and “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” from Mary Poppins. Ninth Grade Bass Clef Choir will perform three songs, including “The Sloop John B.” and “Fly High, You Grand Old Flag.” “Lakota Wiyanki,” “I Choose Love,” and “I Sing Because I’m Happy” will be on the program for Viking Chorus. The concert will conclude with five pieces by Concert Choir, including arrangements of “Elijah Rock,” “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” and “Reconcile.” The music shared is from multiple centuries, genres and cultures, and it is at times joyful, thoughtful and hopeful.
