Annual Bighorn Basin District Music Clinic takes place

On Nov. 17-18, the Powell High School [PHS] band and choir groups performed at Northwest College for the annual Bighorn Basic District Music Clinic directed by Linnea Dickson of the choir and Dr. David Berbernick for the band. 

The concert had Concert Choir and PHS Sings students of PHS perform and play a variety of songs for their audience members in attendance. 

“I thought the overall performance was amazing,” freshman and band member Memphis Solberg said. “The song that stood out to me the most was ‘Music For a Darkened Theatre.’”

Along with “Music For a Darkened Theatre,” band students were also required to play four other songs as well, namely: “Cumberland Cross,” “Orpheus,” “Evening Song,” and “Three Aryes of Gloucester.”

“I think it went very well,” junior Patience Frame said.  “It was a challenge to work with people from different schools and teachers more than usual. We got to learn a lot of new things, especially voice placement.”

Being able to perform for large crowds can be very nerve-racking for many, though the feeling shortly wears off for those performing once the show begins.

“When I get to perform on stage in front of a lot of people, at first I feel a little bit nervous, but once we start singing, I feel pumped to show off our hard work,” sophomore Mason Coombs said. “I also realize that if we do really bad, most people won’t remember our performance in a year.”
