Choir missing!

May 5th, 2011 | By | Category: American International Choral Festival, Choir Events, Featured Articles, Top Post

May 4, 2011 Great excitement at the Opening Concert of The American International Choir Festival 2011 in Reno! Five choirs were expected to perform on stage, but one of them was missing. The “Young Voices of the Adventist University” from Philippines appeared neither for the stage rehearsal and nor they were present at the concert’s beginning.

Nobody knew if and when they would come. The rows reserved for them remained empty and the other choirs spontaneously extended their stage program to substitute the missing choir.

The first half of the evening was already over, the “Prime Note Ensemble” from Saudi-Arabia was currently performing on stage, when they suddenly appeared, wearing their choir dresses, ready to sing and, on top of this, just in the right moment! As it was planned for the original schedule they were expected to perform directly following the “Prime Note Ensemble”. And they just did it:

A few minutes after their arrival with a motor coach they went on stage and sang: “Don’t stop believing”, the famous song from “Glee” – it was like a message to everybody who didn’t believe in their arrival anymore. The audience was delighted by this performance and the “Young Voices of the Adventist University” got what they deserved: Standing Ovations!

By the way, see pictures of all choirs’ performances in the Opening Ceremony here.

    Pretty awesome that the “Young Voices” was able to get 2 gold awards, But their folk category didn’t get counted…If that got counted I’m sure they would win the Choral Festival 2011 Grand Prix…. too bad though…
