One of the area schools has an end of the year concert where the seniors are invited to sing solos. I have a student who is wrestling with ideas of what to sing. Generally, the songs are more along the lines of a ballad. The student is thinking along the lines of songs that contain words, or ideas regarding:
- gratitude (for being a part of the ensemble because this has been a part of the student’s life throughout high school)
- moving on
- what I have learned from you
One initial idea, which is still on the back-burner, is Barbara Streisand’s, “Circle.”
If anyone has any ideas along these lines, please feel free to share. We still have about two months, but we want to be prepared, naturally, ahead of time.
