Cosby Choral Department’s annual Pyramid Concert occurred on Thursday, February 11th. Months of preparation went into this night as various choral classes prepared songs and/or dances to present to the audience of families, friends, and teachers.
Cosby began holding Pyramid concerts the first year the school opened with the intent to attract younger students to join Cosby’s choral program. “In the beginning, the Pyramid Concert included elementary and middle schools,” says Peggy Ripley, a chorus teacher at Cosby. Currently, the concert features students from Tomahawk Creek Middle School and Cosby’s own choral department.
When asked about her favorite part of the show, Ripley replied, “I really enjoy hearing the middle school students perform. I also enjoy getting to see the show choir shows for the first time.”
This is perhaps the most anticipated part of the Pyramid concert for many people, as each show choir, Rhapsody and Spotlight, premiere the shows they have been hard at work on for the last couple of months. This year Rhapsody’s show reveals how fairy godmothers are trained while Spotlight’s show looks at the story of Beauty and the Beast from a new perspective.
Cosby’s choral department consists of the mixed show choir, Spotlight; the girls’ show choir, Rhapsody; the mixed chamber ensemble, Chamber; the women’s chamber ensemble, Serenade, the boys’ group, Vitality, the girls’ standing choir, Vivace; and the mixed and girls’ freshman choruses. While not all these groups performed at the Pyramid Concert, one can find them at the Spring Concert that will take place on May 26th at 7:00PM. Tickets for all of Cosby’s chorus concerts are $7.00 and are sold at all lunches the day of and the days leading up to the performance.
