Preview: Spring Concert

The Los Angeles Pierce College Choir will be presenting the 2019 Spring Concert Saturday, June 1 a 7 p.m. with Victoria Simonian on piano and Dr. Garineh Avakian as conductor.

This is the time of the semester where all the choir students come together to show how hard they have worked while performing traditional spirituals along with proclaimed masterworks.

“The comradery we feel is incredible, we all care about each other and we all support each other ad Dr. Gaga is amazing she is one of the best directors,” said Elizabeth Amann. “Finally having everything come together is a dream, we sound so amazing and I can’t wait to hear us at the Performing Arts Building.”

Along with the group choir songs, there are also some solos that will be shining through during the performance as revealed by Karen Listick, one of the members of the choir.

“I love hearing everyone’s solos, but I love being apart of this group,” said Karen Listick. “Doing something that you’ve worked so hard on and watching come together is great.”

The choir will be performing an array of pieces ranging to even the more difficult ballads.

“I’m excited to perform the Battle of jericho because it is very complicated but it is so much fun to sing with everyone once we get it down,” said Kate Listick, another choir member.

The music instructor and conductor, Dr. Garineh Avakian is always looking for people in the Pierce community who want to come and be apart of the choir.

“Most of these people aren’t music majors, and if people want to be apart of something that is so beautiful, everyone is so supportive,” said Dr. Avakian. “I mean singing for ten minutes a day alone can relieve stress!”
