The Honors Choir opened with “Be Like The Bird.”

The Concert Choir performed three pieces including a New Zealand sea shanty called “The Wellerman.”

The Honors Choir returned to the stage to sing “Come In From the Firefly Darkness” and “Bottom of the River,” the latter an arrangement by Rogers.

The Acapella group sang “One Voice” from Ruth Moody of the Wailin’ Jennys.
