Through the Years

Choir presents another Pop Show performance

Choir will be hosting their annual pop show, this year titled Through the Years, at school on February 2 and February 3 at 7pm.

“This year’s pop show’s theme is the 40th anniversary of Langham because it was established in 1984,” senior Lacey Brandman said. “What I think is different about this one is that all of our songs, except for the solo acts, are songs from the year it [Langham Creek] was established, and I think it really captures the essence of the beginnings of Langham Creek.”

The “best” and “hardest” part of the show is the dancing. 

“It’s a lot of step touching, a lot of grapevining, a lot of just trying to remember the choreography,” junior Morgan Maldanaldo said. “It’s a lot, and then you have to sing on top of that.”

For freshman Kate Putman, Through the Years will be her first high school pop show.

“[I’m most looking forward to] my duet,” Putman said. “I’m doing a duet with one of my friends; we’re singing ‘Dear Theodosia’ from Hamilton, so I’m super excited for that.”

The choir student loves that she “get[s] to dance and not look dumb.”

“I’ve learned that if you feel ridiculous, you’re doing it right,” Putman said. 

Three-year choir member Kendahl Lemons hopes to have fun with her friends at her last pop show.

“My favorite part about being in pop show is seeing all the costumes and the lights come together and all of our hard work with the songs come together,” Lemons said.

Through the Years will be an important milestone for this year’s seniors. 

“I hope that the seniors get their recognition, especially the people with the solos,” Lemons said. “I really hope that they stand out a lot more this year.”

The show is sure to induce nostalgia and happiness in all audiences.

“People should come to pop show to see all the different choirs’ hard work and see that we can do more than just choral music, that we can do pop songs but you can still hear all the different voices,” Lemons said. 

Lemons advises future pop show performers to “always have fun, find the people that make pop show fun, and don’t be afraid to look stupid.”

“I think when you embrace the silliness of everything, you’re able to have fun, because it is ridiculous, but that’s pop show,” Brandman said.
