Out of nowhere
Choir introduces new Prestige
September 25, 2018
This new choir came out of nowhere. Literally. Out of the Blue started this school year as a replacement for last year’s show choir Prestige.
Instead of it being a class period, Out of the Blue meets during Power Hour of Friday during A lunch. This year around 80 people tried out with 16 people making it.
“I’m so happy that many people auditioned,” Assistant Choir Director Mrs. Ashley Dame said, “We have a talented group of singers.”
Last year, Prestige, according to Mrs. Dame, was more like a pop choir. Out of the Blue’s style is more similar to acapella group Pentatonix.
“Our best feature is how we sound,” senior Kamryn King said. “It’s a whole new style.”
“Those are some of my favorite songs so I can’t wait to perform them,” senior Kaylen Younger said.
Their first competition is for Big D Classic in Dallas.
“I’m most excited for the change in style combined with the tremendous skills of the other performers,” senior Adam Orr said.
