Choir Camp Day 3

Day 3 is coming to a close. Choristers started the day with some energetic gospel music singing the theme to “The Jeffersons” which woke them up pretty fast! Who doesn’t love the energy of gospel music? Ending this morning’s rehearsal was some choreography to “Jump” from Glee. Energy must have been the theme to this morning’s rehearsal to get campers ready for an afternoon full of off campus performances.

After eating lunch, we headed to give a special cameo performance at the Erie Art Museum’s Mid Day Art Break. This performance set the tone for great performances to come. The audience really responded to the various TV theme songs and was eager to vote for us when they heard we were in the running for a $25,000 Pepsi Refresh Grant!

Next was a performance at Sarah Reed Retirement Center where we gave a performance for their residents. Following Sarah Reed was the Erie Zoo where we met many parents, Zoo patrons and a news crew. The concert went great and included a crowd-pleasing performance of the theme from “Sponge Bob Square Pants.” After the performance ended, campers got to explore the zoo with their chaperones. The weather was ideal and campers loved being able to see all the animals.

Tomorrow, campers will wake up early to give a live performance on WICU’s Morning Show at 6am. Be sure to tune in to the program to see the campers sing on live TV!
