Sydney is a 15 year old singer from Cohasset. Chris (not pictured) is a 15 year old singer from Duxbury.
What do you think is the most valuable skill you’ve learned at SVI so far?
Sydney: Probably working within a group to master difficult harmonies. They sound so good once you get them. I think that’s a really valuable skill and this camp really focuses on that.
Chris: So far, I’ve learned how to read bass clef, which was something new for me since I play a woodwind instrument. I’m used to reading only treble clef. I learned (how to read bass clef) from Syd!
What is your favorite piece that you’re currently working on, either at the camp or privately?
Sidney: I like “The Nightingale,” which we’re working on at the camp. It’s really pretty but really intense! My favorite solo song is “Wonderful Guy” from “South Pacific.” Chris: “Freeze Your Brain” from “Heathers.”
What are you most looking forward to about the performance?
Sydney: Honestly, you all (gestures to the other SVI students)! I love you guys and I love working with you. You guys are all great.
Chris: I’m really looking forward to working on my solos on stage and actually performing the finalized pieces. I’m also looking forward to hearing all my friends perform because I love them so much.
