A cup of coffee and contemporary music are on the menu at choir’s Coffee House show in the cafeteria Thursday at 7 p.m. which will feature more informal performances.

“We want to do something different to have a less formal opportunity to feature talented musicians from the choir,” choir director Bruce Stevenson said. “So rather than another choir program, it’s kind of a time to see who our choirs are made up of. It’s a less formal and just more of an individual thing that represents who we are and what we do.”

With limited space for soloists during more formal choir performances, Thursday’s show allows for some choir students to experience the difference between singing independently and singing with a group.

“Performing solo gives you a chance to let people hear how you sound individually,” freshman Kameron Askew said. “I think my solo’s gonna go pretty swell, so it should be a fun event.”

There will be 13 solos and duets featured in the program, as well as the show choir, which will be the group’s second performance of the year. Tickets for the show are available at the door for $5.

“We’ve rehearsed a lot after school on Wednesdays,” freshman Chloe Zonis said. “We’ve put in a lot of hard work, so I think it’s gonna go well.
