Dressed in red and black formal attire, the Madrigals from Great Bend High School sang at Wednesday’s Kiwanis Club meeting, with a second performance planned in the evening. Vocal instructor Susan Stambaugh said the choir has been singing once or twice a day of late.
The Madrigals are part of the A Cappella Choir. Last Sunday choir members presented the 80th annual Vespers program at the GBHS.
“We are so rich in tradition,” Stambaugh said. “It’s because of community.” Some of the choir members’ parents sang some of the same songs. Staying with tradition, the Madrigals performed some swinging holidays tunes and then ended their program with the choir’s signature song, “Reach Out and Touch.”
“They are an awesome group of young people,” Stambaugh said “I feel blessed to be able to work with them.”
She also noted that choir members are attempting to raise money for their trip to Washington, D.C. next March.
Students are available to shop or do all sorts of odd jobs, such as raking leaves or putting up Christmas lights. Anyone interested in learning more about “Rent-A-Student” should call GBHS, 793-1521, and ask for Stambaugh.
