May Flowers Blooming at the JPS Spring Choir Concert


EDISON, NJ -After returning from its annual overnight Boston trip and bringing the school numerous prestigious awards, the John P. Stevens High School Choir has worked hard to put together another great performance- the Spring Choir Concert on Wednesday.

The event was the last choir performance as a whole group for this school year.

"The spring concert is our last performance as a full choir every year, so it's usually an emotional time for seniors especially," Shiv Nadkarni, the JPS choir Co-President said.

In the concert, the music-lovers will got to hear songs like Bacai per havita vita, which was sung by the Concert Choir, and Doluri, which was performed by Accapella.

The event ended with The Lord Bless You and Keep You.

The preparation for the choir concert involves practice that usually starts with a warm up, which consists of many breathing exercises and other activities and end with a full rehearsal of the performances. Even during this time of intense practice, the students try to have fun.

“While practicing, Mr. Meszaros tries to joke around a bit, just so we all can laugh, while at the same time prepare ourselves for the upcoming concert. And he is the one who makes the room's environment more fun, exciting, and just perfect for us to rehearse!" Avani Patel, a JPS freshman said.

The concert was held on May 6 at the J.P. Stevens auditorium and admission was free.
