Nicholas County [WV, USA] Girls Choir — Richwood Concert

Richwood, WV – April 25, 2014

Nicholas County Girls Choir appeared in concert at First Baptist Church, in Richwood, West Virginia, USA on Friday evening, April 25, 2014.

Under direction of Amy Hypes, the 30 choristers sang eight  well-selected pieces including two by John Rutter.  The program varied from traditional church and choral genre, to include 1950s Doo Wop and the Pink Panther theme. Another variant was a sweet rendition accompanied on banjo by Logan Browning.  Accompanist for the evening performance was Wayne Halstead.

There was an unannounced inclusion of “Les Oiseaux Dans la Charmille”  Olympia’s Aria, from Jacques Offenbach’s ‘Les Contes d’Hoffmann’, before start of the main program, sung by soloist, Miss Sammie Goette.

The entire concert by Nicholas County Girls Choir was simply superb.
