On December 1, 2023, Las Vegas Academy’s Vocal Department held its annual winter concert. Vegas Rincon, Makayla Rivas, and Madison Morseburg were all performers at this concert.

“I didn’t really do much choir, I did theater mainly but I did take it one year. I absolutely adored it,”  said Rincon.

Rivas also had prior experience in choir which led them to continue. “I feel like my elementary school choir teacher definitely made me fall in love with choir,” said Rivas. 

Morseburg had a different route for music; they started off in theater, which later turned into exploring different branches like musical theater. “ I wanted to go into musical theater, so I thought taking a choir class would be really beneficial and help me hone in on more of those skills, other than just learning how to act,” said Morseburg.

They all had favorite parts in the concert, Rincon and Rivas both agreed that the audience was their favorite part of the entire show. The energy of the audience gave them the confidence to perform better. Morseburg, however, thought the kazoos from the performance were fun and the best part of the show. 

Though they had expressed pride in their show, the three did see areas in which they would like to grow.

 Rincon would like to connect their emotions to what they are singing. “I’m really extra when it comes to acting during a song and trying to convey the emotions of songs. So I think definitely just working on honing it a little bit would definitely be something,” said Rincon. 

Morseburg will be working on improving their confidence and being louder. “I would probably work more on being louder, because I feel like there’s a lot of the time if I’m not 100 percent confident I get really quiet,” said Morseburg.

Rincon and Morseburg plan on taking some type of music into their future.

Rincon will continue to sing. She’s taking a risk on taking a career in music, noting that she might not get much out of it but will be working hard for it. 

Morseburg wants to go into a career involving music; however, she’s not sure. She would like to explore being a therapist or anything in psychology. 

Rivas won’t take it into her future; however, she will still have “a special place in my heart for choir and singing.”
