South Pasadena Middle, High School Choirs Serenade at Festival

Choir groups from South Pasadena Middle School and the South Pasadena High School on April 27 competed at the Verdugo Hills A Cappella Scholarship Festival and placed among the event’s best ensembles.
SPMS Advanced Choir finished runner-up and earned a $5,500 scholarship, while SPHS Choir placed sixth and also earned a $5,500 scholarship. The scholarship money will be used for purchasing instruments, buying sheet music, hiring accompanists, and paying for buses, according to officials.
It is the third year the two choirs have participated in the event. During the competition, each choir performs two a cappella songs and are adjudicated in nine categories: tone, balance, blend, diction, interpretation, rhythm, intonation, general effect, and music selection.
The choirs have upcoming performances for anyone interested in seeing them live. The SPHS Choir will perform at the SPHS Little Theater on May 22 at 6 and 7:30 p.m. The middle school will hold SPMS Music Fest on May 29 at 5 p.m. on the school’s quad.
