The Maplewood Richmond Heights high school and middle school choirs presented their Fall Concert last night.
The results of obviously much hard work were presented on the Maplewood Richmond Heights Auditorium stage Wednesday night. The MRH Middle School and MRH High School choirs sang their Fall Concert for a mostly-full auditorium. Nicholas Urvan is the choral director. See more photos at Clayton-Richmond Heights Patch Facebook (Like It!) The Middle School Choir sang Short People, Follow the Drinking Gourd, Count on Me, and others. The Treble Devils, high school girls, began with Call Your Girlfriend, with Natalie Mitten providing percussion with a plastic MRH cup and clapping. Lucy Miller soloed on Settle Down with poise, yet intensity. The program was entertaining, whether or not you might have a student performing.
