Hello everyone, and happy Super Tuesday! Since we don’t have school today, I thought I’d take this time to tell you all about something new the A Cappella groups did for Valentine’s Day, even though it’s now March and I think I’ve eaten all of my Valentine’s Day candy by this point.
If you’ve watched To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You which came out on Netflix a couple of weeks ago, you probably saw the scene where the school’s A Cappella group went around to unsuspecting victims to sing love songs sent by other students. That’s exactly what we did this year!
Organized by Ms. Rescott (a queen) and the Class of ‘22 Officers, singing grams started being sold during the lunches about a week or so before Valentine’s Day. Students (and staff) were able to choose from a variety of different songs, and could pay a couple of extra dollars to have candy sent to the person they wanted to woo (or embarrass). Ingrid Sound sang Electric Love, Just The Way You Are, I Want It That Way, and Unwritten. Falconize sang Youth, My Girl, I Want It That Way, and Perfect. Altogether, it was a pretty successful event, and the Class of ‘22 was able to raise a lot of money from it!
Personally, I really enjoyed this experience. It felt really good to see teachers’ faces light up when we told them we were here to sing, or see the students get excited knowing they were going to have a brief break from class. There were some kinks that need to be worked out, since this was the first time, but I hope the groups continue to do it. I can’t wait to see how it expands in the future!
Katie Miraglia, class of 2022, is a member of Falconize and Deception at DHS and can be frequently seen in the school's theater productions. She is also Drum Major of the Marching Band and plays bass clarinet. She took over the Danvers High Chorus Blog for the 2021-22 school year.
