Salem Lutheran School Spring Concert: Christ Has Triumphed!

Cross-posted from the Salem Renaissance:

This evening's Salem Lutheran School's Annual Spring Concert: Christ Has Triumphed! was a rousing success.

Miss Rehema Kavugha led our school's student choristers, as well as directing our musicians (Mrs. Kristin Albarado, piano and organ; Miss Kimberly King, clarinet; and Mr. Kyle Bergeron, trumpet) in an ambitious program of classical Christian hymnody that included Felix Mendelssohn's O Rest In the Lord, Johann Sebastian Bach's Rejoice O My Spirit, St. Patrick's classic hymn I Bind Unto Myself Today, as well as more modern hymns (including the Carol of Prophecy by Shirley W. McRae that had the children singing the Latin chorus: "Exultate, jubilate Deo!"

They were outstanding!

The choirs included:

The Alleluia Chorus: Madeline Appel, Luke Althage, Joshua Ballay, Matthew Clement, Isabella Clouatre, Madeline Grisoli, Trinity LeBlanc, Nathan Levandoske, Jessica Lotz, Cross Mitchell, Madison Meladine, Madison Olson, Jena Stallings, Christian Swoop, Emily Vedros, and Joshua Wichers.

The Sanctus Singers: Jae'la Every, Isabella Grisoli, Karrington Keller, Brianna Lassiegne, Jonathan Pagan, Haley Rodrigue, Kennedi White, and Kaylee Wichers.

The Glory Givers: Macey Boudreaux, Keslea Hall, Elyssa Lassiegne, Imani Mulmore, Joye Pate, and Cheryl Ricks.

The Chime Choir: Colton Darnell, Jacob DeMoss, Keslea Hall, Brant Jambon, Freddreionne King, Elyssa Lassiegne, Imani Mulmore, Kourtney Parker, Joye Pate, Jaelyn Robinson, and Zoey Turner.

There are a few pictures here. They aren't the best pictures, but were taken from the balcony with no flash. But what the snapshots lack in quality our choirs, musicians, and Miss Kavugha made up for in the quality of their work.

Thank you for you magnificent performance to the glory of our triumphant and risen Lord!
