Garrard school choirs perform
LANCASTER - A stage full of elementary students kicked off the new season with their second annual "Spring Fling" concert Tuesday night at Garrard County High School.
Choirs from Camp Dick, Paint Lick and Lancaster schools - about 165 students - performed individually, and then joined to sing four diverse works: "Antiphonal Gloria," a choral in Latin by John Leavitt; "Kang Ding Flower Song," a Chinese folk song; "I Want Two Wings," an African-American spiritual; and "Hine Ma Tov," a Jewish choral sung in Hebrew.
The students were taught the songs by their schools' music teachers: Cindy Perry, Camp Dick; Missy Culp, Paint Lick; and Joy Ploskonka, Lancaster.
The choirs then had their performances "fine tuned" by Laura Wilson, who teaches music instruction at Morehead State University. Wilson led the students for the second year in a row. Accompanying them on piano was Wilson's mother, Bobbie Bevins.
Also contributing were Nick Scott, a junior at Garrard who played percussion on "Antiphonal Gloria," and Nicole Walters, a Garrard freshman who played flute on "Kang Ding Flower Song."
