The Carolina Forest High School Show Choir and Classical Choir each took first place in their divisions at the Big Apple Choral Classic last Saturday at the College of Staten Island in New York. The awards topped their three days in the city, where they were able to get in some sightseeing and see both “Spiderman” and “Newsies” on Broadway.
Music Director Kraig McBroom said the group was able to visit with Adam Roberts, a North Myrtle Beach native who is in “Spiderman,” and they also had dinner with cast members from the show. The group also had a two-hour workshop with members of the “Newsies” cast and learned both the vocal parts and choreography from a number in the show.
“I am very proud of them,” McBroom said, “both their performance on stage and their behavior and positive attitude off stage.”
The show choirs will be performing their season grand finale, “Showstoppers,” with vocal direction by McBroom and choreography by Bryan Beaman and Natalie Cesario, May 17-18 at 7 p.m. and May 19 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $7 and are now available at the school’s main office, 700 Gardner Lacy Road, Myrtle Beach.
