Pops Concert attracts sold out crowd

RUSHVILLE — Saturday night, the Laughlin Center for the Performing Arts was the setting for the sold out 2013 Pops Concert by the RCHS Choirs under the direction of Paul Grizzard, choral director.

The annual Pops Concert is highly anticipated and tickets generally are hard to come by after the first few days of availability.

Songs are selected from nominations submitted by choir members and usually include a few fun moments sprinkled between great music for the audience.

The Men’s Choir’s performance of the hit “Thrift Shop” featured hilarious outfits that likely came from the sale rack of the local thrift shops and featured soloists Jon Seals and Jordan Fritz.

The duet “Stay” by Alesha Smith and Becca Green drew thunderous applause and many other numbers delighted listeners.

The Freshman’s Girls’ Choir opened with the Paul McCartney song, “Maybe I’m Amazed” followed by “Wanted,” “Titanium” and a mesmerizing song using plastics cups as a unique rhythm section called, “You’re Gonna Miss Me” with a solo by Gabby Doyle.

The Lovers’ Dozen, an all-male ensemble, performed Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around Comes Around.”

The Treble Choir featured “Seasons of Love” with soloists Hannayh Eaves and Haley Riddell, along with renditions of “Your Song,” “Skyfall” and “Radioactive.”

Cloud 9, the all-female ensemble, delivered the song, “Safe and Sound.”

The Men’s Choir opened with a Mumford and Sons song, “I Will Wait,” along with “I’m Yours,” “Somebody That I Used To Know” with Chandler Buchanon as soloist followed by “Thrift Shop.”

The A Capella Choir performed “Hall of Fame,” “Some Nights” with soloists Kayla Everhart and Becca Green, Elton John’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” and “Under Pressure.”

The celebrated Madrigal Choir also reunited to perform for the audience.

The final song, “Joy to the World,” by Three Dog Night, brought a fun finale to the performance with members from all choirs joining together on stage.

Teresa Fagan was accompanist for the evening with the Pops Band including Michael VanSchoyck on drums, Clayton Green on guitar, L.J. Conrad on saxophone, Jimmy Tucker on bass, Patrick Waclaw on guitar and Evan Hallgarth on banjo.

The Senior Choir Recognition Dinner is 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the 201 Building in Rushville.
