Winter Choral Concert starts off the holiday season

By: Brandon English

West Bend High School hosted a choir concert this past Monday night. Many people came to see their children sing, and all of them left smiling. The music departments collaborated and the orchestra joined in helping play some holiday music. They had bell players and madrigal singers. Everyone seemed extremely proud of how well they performed.

Mixed Choir sang “Carols Around,” “Jubilate,” and “Go Tell it on the Mountain”. Concert Choir sang “Cantate Domino,” “Animal Crackers,” “Lo How A Rose ‘Er Blooming,” and “The Fiddler Of Dooney”. Vivace sang “Christmas Chopstix,” “Mr. Santa,” and “Mama Mia”.

Two of the soloists in Mixed Choir were Wesley Kane and Jordan Buchacher. In Concert Choir, the soloists were Danielle Gedemer and Margee Muney. They all did a fantastic job.

At the end of the concert, all of the choirs surrounded the seats. The crowd looked confused, and out of nowhere, they started to sing “Silent Night”. It was a great crowd pleaser, and following the concert, everyone got cookies. Overall, the choir concert was a great success.

West Falls to Wisconsin Lutheran

JV has good shooting form but can’t close the deal

Both West Bend West’s JV and Varsity basketball teams got defeated. Already in the first period, Wisconsin Lutheran took an early lead in the West JV game. By the end of the half, the score was 19-43 in Wisconsin Lutheran’s favor. Through the entire game, Wisconsin Lutheran was in the lead. The referees made a few mistakes during the game, which may have accounted for a few points but not all of them. The crowd seemed displeased, and it was a horrible loss to Wisconsin Lutheran. The final score of the JV game was 47-79 Wisconsin Lutheran.

West Bend West’s Varsity did not do a great job in their game either. It seems as though both teams were having an off day. With the final score of the Varsity game being 39-76 Wisconsin Lutheran, we can only hope they put as much soul into the game as they do in practice.
