Annual Cathedral Concert held in Victoria

The annual Hays Symphony Cathedral Concert was held Dec. 11 at the Basilica of St. Fidelis Cathedral in Victoria. Admission was free.

The groups that performed were the Hays Chorale, Fort Hays Chamber Choir, the Hays High Chamber Singers and the Thomas More Prep Pop Singers.

The Hays High Chamber Singers sang “Hodie Christus” and “Salve Regina.” They collaborated with the TMP group on a song called “Here is the Little Door.”

“My favorite part of the concert was just getting to sing in the cathedral itself,” junior Chamber Singer Sam Albin said. “The acoustics are amazing, and the beauty of the cathedral is stunning.”

Another Hays High student, junior Evyn Cox, participated in the orchestra section of the concert.

“It was truly a breathtaking concert; the acoustics really are great in the cathedral,” Cox said. “The absolute best part was listening to the other groups perform the music they worked so hard on.”
