Show choir gives first performance

By Aly Gibson

Olivet’s new show choir, “the Clefhangers,” debuted their talents for students, faculty, and staff on March  24 at 7 and 9 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium.

After weeks of practicing songs, lines, and dance moves, the Clefhangers performed to a full auditorium.  Many who attended were happy to see something a bit different from the usual.

Junior Krista Skelton was surprised at how the show began.

“I wasn’t sure whether to laugh at first,” Skelton said.  “I definitely saw how awesome they were, though.”

“The Clefhangers” took the stage singing songs such as Warren Barfield’s “Love is not a Fight,” and “I’m a Believer” by the Monkees.

Skelton noted that she liked a particular rendition originally performed by pop singer Jordin Sparks.

“I loved ‘Battlefield.’ It was really entertaining,” she said.

Sophomore Rachel Kearney agreed, saying that watching the performers was the most entertaining.

Junior Sarah Zelhart also agreed that the performers really kept the audience’s attention.

“You couldn’t take your eyes off of them,” she noted.

While the show did not last long, Skelton and Zelhart found themselves both wanting more.

“I wanted to see more songs, maybe five or six,” Zelhart mentioned.

Skelton agreed, saying she wants to attend the next performance to see what else the show choir will come up with.

“I wanted more [this show], so I will definitely be at the next one,” she said.
