After performing virtually during the 2020-21 school year, Coppell Choir has its fall concert at 7 p.m. in the CHS Auditorium, its first live performance after learning returned to the Coppell High School campus.  

The fall concert is an annual event at CHS. However, this year has high stakes of syncing as Coppell Choir becomes united as one with the return of in-person learning. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the choir recorded songs separately and combined them in a video. Now, students will stand in front of a live audience performing the culmination of weeks of practice. 

“[This year], we’ve gotten to work on our blending and singing together as a choir,” sophomore choir officer Roma Jani said.

CHS9 Treble A and Treble B will also be at the event showcasing various songs which are unique to this event. “Gloria” by Franz Joseph Haydn and “Dies Irae” by Ryan Main. To close the concert, the entire choir will perform two songs together.

“I’m looking forward to the experience because it’s been over a year since we’ve gotten to [perform live], and I’ve almost forgotten the feeling of what it’s like,’ Jani said. “The concert is something we always look forward to so much, [and] I’m really looking forward to [having] that feeling again.”
