Fourteen members of the University of Michigan-Dearborn Choir performed Friday evening in the Borg Warner Auditorium led by Director Jeremy St. Martin. The director played the piano, while the voices of the choir carried the show.

The night began featuring the Pop Choir who kicked off the show with a rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey. The Pop Choir performed five songs.

St. Martin lightheartedly told the audience he’s unfamiliar with current songs played on the radio, so he handed over the song “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons to the members of the choir.

Soloist Cheyenne Paonessa was featured before the Classical Choir sang “Gloria in Excelsis” and a medley from “Les Miserables” that included “I Dreamed a Dream” and “On My Own.”

“It was nerve-racking, but I like singing Broadway. That is my favorite,” Hannah Garl, “On My Own” soloist said.

The “Les Miserables” medley was chosen since the feature film is being released in theaters this month.

The UMD Choir accepts new members and will hold an open meeting Dec. 13 at 4:30 p.m. in 4034 CASL.
