FCS Fine Arts - Choirs & Musicale 2018
Last week, the high school choirs traveled to Pasadena for the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Senior High Musicale in Southern California. Joining with other high school choirs from California, the students participated in a two-day festival which finishes in a concert featuring all of the 600+ students singing together.
From the official ACSI website:
"ACSI Musicale is a two-day choir festival that culminates in a public Command Performance and Sacred Concert in which all choirs are combined. Each choir, regardless of size, must memorize the six (6) combined songs chosen by the guest conductor. Each choir will also be adjudicated by the guest conductor on two (2) of their own selections. Musicale also features adjudications for chamber choirs, large ensembles, small ensembles, sacred classical solos, and gospel solos.
This is not a competition. Choirs, ensembles, and soloists are adjudicated by the guest conductor or guest adjudicators, and received oral and written evaluative comments."
This year, both our Concert Choir and Living Water Ensemble each earned a Command Performance. A couple of our students also earned solo Command Performance - congratulations to Keren G. and Madison G. One student noted that judges were brought to tears due to an excellent performance from FCS.
A big congratulations to Mr. Guzman, Ms. Sondra, and every student. We've seen the hard work that each person puts in to make this run smoothly.
Partnering with families to provide extraordinary education and genuine encounters with Jesus, all within a community of compassion.
