The Chapman choir has invaded Carlmont.

The Chapman University Singers came to Carlmont on Jan. 20 on their tour and interacted with Carlmont’s Chamber Singers and Treble Clef choirs.

During third period, Treble Clef and Chamber Singers had an exchange with the University Singers where each choir performed for the others.

Later that evening, the three groups gathered at Trinity Presbyterian Church to perform a free concert that many choir students and parents attended.

This was the third year that Chapman and Carlmont have held this concert together.

In the concert, Treble Clef performed a piece by the a cappella group The Wailin’ Jennys called “Bright Morning Stars.” They also sang an Italian piece with the ladies of the University Singers.

“We sang ‘O Pastorelle’ at our winter concert, and I was so excited when I found out that the University Singers knew it. We only found out that we’d be singing it with them that morning,” said junior Kate Bryan.

Chamber Singers performed a song from their winter concert repertoire along with a new song they received at the beginning of the second semester.

The University Singers performed an extensive set that included folk songs, classical songs, and songs from various other periods of music.

“The University Singers sang all these different genres of songs, and they sounded fantastic in all of them. It sounded heavenly,” said Bryan.

The performers were conducted by both Carlmont’s Performing Arts Department Chair, Genevieve Tep, and the Director of Choral Activities and Associate Professor of Music at Chapman University, Stephen Coker.

The concert also featured soloists from the University Singers that performed pieces from operas.

At the end of the night, all performers gathered to sing “Hallelujah” from Handel’s “Messiah.” Both Treble Clef and Chamber Singers performed this at their winter concert as well.

Altogether, the concert was a major success, and while the University Singers are continuing their US tour, Treble Clef and Chamber are working on their repertoire for their next performance.
