This past Wednesday morning, 18 select choir students from Campion Academy joined with Mile High Academy students to travel to Union College’s annual music festival.
Upon arrival, after settling into their dorms, the students immediately underwent intense music rehearsals for the next three days. “Practices were rough because they were long, but what made it interesting and fun were the people I was around,” commented Dwayne Rey, junior.
Each school performed during the vespers program Friday night. On Sabbath morning, all of the schools came together and sang in front of the College View Church. Bella Fay, senior and choir accompanist shared, “It was a lot of fun being a part of the big choir, and I really enjoyed having the opportunity to play the piano for such a large and energetic event.”
The students not only had a break from the Campion dorms, they also were able to create long-lasting memories. “It was really cool being able to see the creativity behind the performances of the other schools, as well as just getting out and being able to meet new people in a different environment;” senior Melody Mambo reflected, “It was definitely an experience to remember and I know that we, as Koinonia, got even closer as a group which was a great feeling.”
