Director Ray Killian begins the concert off with the joyful piece called, "With a Voice of Singing".

On Friday, the Manitou Springs Mustang Chorale put on their annual end of the year concert. Some of the repertoire included latin gospel pieces, madrigals and pieces based off of Robert Frost poems, one of which was “The Pasture” arranged by Z. Randall Stroope. The arrangement was directed by Hayley Hamblin (12) as one of her final goodbyes to the Mustang chorale. In another piece, Stephanie Winters (11) had the well-performed soprano solo in the Roman Catholic Kyrie.

After the concert, director Ray Killian arranged an awards ceremony for those who received choral and honor choir achievements. The awards included honor choir pins, “Chorister of the Year”, “Most Improved”, and section leaders. There were two “Chorister of the Year” award winners, because they were both equally outstanding: Hayley Hamblin and Stephanie Winters. The “Most Improved” was revealed to be one of Manitou’s most outspoken exchange students, Santiago Avirama (11). Avirama came into the choir second semester with no singing experience and ended up being in the tenor section, along with the tenor section leader Maya West (10). The other leaders were Nathan Plush (10) for basses, Meghann Root (11) for the altos and Kyra Harris (9) for the sopranos. The honor choir awards went to all the participants in the Southern Colorado Honor Choir in Pueblo and the Western Slope Honor Choir in Gunnison.
