✨ Our Final Senior Shoutout!!
Brianna Bakoledis has been a member of the Concert Choir family for the past four years. During her time, she has led the choir as our choir manager for three years and alto section leader for one. She says, her favorite choir memory is, "The 2019 Make Our Garden Grow Tour. With it being the last choir tour I was able to go on, it's full of memories that mean a lot to me."

Fun fact about Brianna is that she studied abroad in Greece her sophomore year at Maryville College.

Bakoledis will be completing her student teaching requirements at Heritage Middle and High School in the fall. She hope to be a Middle School Music Teacher or to have her own voice lesson studio in the near future.

The choral/fine arts department is going to miss your random singing on the third floor (in the middle of the day), your fierce passion for music, and that heart of gold dedication you've shown to our program during your time here at Maryville College. We cannot wait to see what the future holds in store for you... Congratulations!!! ❤

✨ Senior Shoutout!!
Haylee Wilson has been a member of the Concert Choir family for the past four years. During her time, she has led the choir in multiple facets on the choir leadership team-- soprano section leader, choir vice president, and choir librarian. She says, her favorite choir memory is, "When we sang the Lutkin Benediction for the first time on tour my freshman year.

✨ Senior Shoutout!!
Andrew Kosky has been a member of the Concert Choir family for the past four years. During his tenure he has been our bass section leader for two of those years and our chief of staff for one. He says his favorite choir memory would have to be... "My first performance at the college. My parents still lived around, so they came to see us perform. Alan thought it would be a great idea for us to all drop our pants during the Lads performance of “Men in tights”—we were wearing tights, but it was marginally better than dancing in straight underwear on stage. So my first ever performance at the college, I performed for my parents pantsless in front of a rather full crowd on the Nutt stage. T’was a strange experience."

Fun fact about Kosky-- He has a Black Belt in Martial Arts! He's also a fantastic percussionist to beat!

Kosky will be graduating with a bachelors degree in music theory and composition and plans to focus on applying to jobs as a video game composer or an audio producer in one of many facets.

To say that you will be missed in an understatement. Thank you for your voice, musical skills, and leadership that you've given to this choir. ❤
Kosky leaves us with these words:
" Choir has been an incredible experience. I will look back fondly at the memories made. You only get this experience once, so make the most of it."

Have you used https://EasyVirtualChoir.com? It’s a game changer, super EASY and FREE! The software aligns audio/video tracks automatically and will save you lots of editing time. Many users say EasyVirtualChoir recreates a live choir experience for singers. It allows each singer to follow the conducting/reference video and peer sound tracks to sing along with. Choir director can evaluate/adjust individual recordings before exporting the final production video. The software has also been widely used for virtual rehearsals by which the choir director can quickly evaluate each singer and provide timely feedback. No need to send files around, everything is done within the app. After everyone finishes singing, the choir video can be created in just a few minutes. The entire process is so intuitive, simple and fast for both choir director and singers, that most k-12 school music teachers have got a video created after just one class period. Virtual choir and online rehearsals have become so much easier with EasyVirtualChoir. Hope this free resource will be helpful to your ensemble too!
Proud of you Stacey!
Looking forward to the performance at the TMEA conference!
