Deer Park's First Men's Choir Day was a GREAT Success!

Students worked with conductors from the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music

Last Friday, October 16, the Deer Park male students grades 6-12 had the opportunity to work with conductors from the University of Cincinnati (UC) College Conservatory of Music. The day kicked off with lunch catered by Subway to which the Deer Park singers and UC conductors were able to get to know one another before heading into a very fun, yet focused rehearsal schedule.

Our choirs worked hard to learn four songs in the span of about four hours to which most of them were able to sing from memory! The improvement of their sound from the start of the day to the end was spectacular! By the time the 6 PM concert rolled around, the young men were singing with confidence and producing a sound that was full--and on pitch. Not only did they sound great but they also looked great in their complimentary Men's Choir Day t-shirt! Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School is definitely looking forward to hosting this event again next year!

A HUGE thank you to Dr. Orso, Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School Principal, and Mr. Bergan, Amity Elementary Principal, for allowing the Choir Department to host this one of a kind Men's Day!
