BERNARDS TWP., NJ - Here are some scenes from Ridge High School's spring choral concert last month, courtesy of photographer Betsy-Bacot Aigner.

Performed under the direction of Choral Director Barbara Retzko, the evening was a last chance for some seniors who later graduated as part of the Ridge Class of 2016 to sing with their schoolmates.

During the evening performance at the Ridge PAC on June 7, 26 seniors received "four-year choir member" roses for singing for all their high school years in the choral concert.

During the program, senior singer Seraphima Morrow received a huge applause from her fellow singers and the audience, after "student conducting" the Concert Choir's performance of "Freedom Train."  Seraphima will be attending the Westminster Choir College and plans to study Choral Music Education.

The ever-popular "Guys Nite Out" group consisting of 63 guys - students from 6 to12 grade males, grads, dads, friends and Barbara Retzko's husban - also roused the crowd during their performance of the song "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," conducted by co-director, Carol Beadle.

The A cappella Choir sang and took over the stage for "With a Little Help from My Friends," which featured as soloists  senior John Pinto, sophomore Ally Lambie, junior Spencer Krell, senior Evelyne Labelle, junior Emily Kopchains, and sophomore Emma Marsters.
