The concert had a great turnout, and many parents were impressed. There was even a small group of college students that were spotted watching and listening to the performance. The enthusiasm of the audience was contagious, and many students and family members were singing and dancing along to the arrangements. The soulful and youthful voices of the soloists were very impressive to all. The talent and dedication could not be forgotten, Mrs. Ortell, the musical director, awarded many students for their phenomenal participation.
