When you walk by the SJHS Choir room during sixth to eighth period, you will hear melodies and harmonies. On December 11th, elementary school students will be able to hear these harmonies and melodies without leaving their schools. “All of the elementary schools in Springville will be visited (by the Master Singers and Knightingales),” said Mrs. Leslie Walker, the SJHS choir director. The Master Singers is the ninth grade audition choir; the Knightingales are a mixed chorus of eighth and ninth grade girls.

The Master Singers will be presenting four pieces one with “Choralography—movement on the risers” and another one with a full dance; while the Knightingales will perform three, one with “choralography.” The choralography for the Knightingales was taught by Mrs. Courtney Johnson, an SJHS Vice Principal, who once performed with the BYU International Folkdancers.

For the eighth grade Knightingales, this will be a new experience. According to Krystena Robbins, an eighth grader, she is excited because little kids love songs. Her favorite song they’re performing in “Santa Claus is coming to Town.” She has a younger sister who attends Sage Creek Elementary, whom Krystena will get to see in the afternoon.
