Choirs Perform to Ovations and Tears

It was an emotional night as Cypress Chorale premiered the new work by Z. Randall Stroope to honor our three lost fathers. Many tears were shed by both performers and audience members as the choir gave a heartfelt performance of the piece. The judges were in agreement as Chorale received superior ratings from all adjudicators. One judge commented that "there is always one magic moment at these festivals ... that WOW factor. This was it for me. How beautiful that music & text can used as a healing tool and to carry on memories. The tribute was beautiful. I couldn't speak while you were singing - Too moving and powerful." We would again like to thank Dr. Stroope for agreeing to the commission and for providing a beautiful piece of music as a tribute. Intermezzo was also "on" as they wowed the crowd and the judges with their performance. They also received superior ratings from every adjudicator. Congratulations to both choirs for their outstanding performances at the District Music Performance Assessment. You can recordings of both choir's performances in the music section of this site.
