    Chanteurs and New Spirit Big Pow Wo

    Post  eileenchow on Tue Mar 09, 2010 11:52 pm

    I'm still waiting on more quotes so I'll add when I get more....this is just a rough draft of the article

    Picture the amazing performances of Chanteurs and New Spirit, with the performers' skillful displays of various songs and choreography. Now, throw in multiple show choirs from all over Southern California, a packed performance site, and many displays of singing and dancing into the equation. If you mix all of these elements together, you now have a fairly accurate depiction of the Chanteurs and New Spirit's biggest event of the year. Featuring all of the previously mentioned components and more, Chanteurs and New Spirit's Big "Pow Wow" event truly lives up to its name.
    The curtains open for this year's "Pow Wow XVI" on Friday, March 19 at San Gabriel Valley Mission Playhouse. Starting from (6:30? 7:00 p.m.) to around 12:00 a.m., audience members are presented multitudes of musical performances by over 10(?) other show choirs throughout California, including performances from our very own Chanteurs and New Spirit. Tickets for this event are sold for $6. Chanteurs and New Spirit invited various arrays of choir groups, ranging from John Burroughs "Powerhouse" and Brea Olinda "Masquerade." Chanteurs' member, junior Vania Wang remarked how "It'll be interesting to see [Burroughs and Brea Olinda,] which are ranked as two of California's top show choirs, battle it out for first." Some other invited groups include Mark Keppel's "Aztec Singers(?)" Bonita Vista's "The Music Machine," and Diamond Bar's "Marquis."
    Both Chanteurs and New Spirit take up the role of hosting and basically running this entire event. Even though, playing the host comes with many preparations to be taken care of, the members of both choir groups eagerly embrace their many duties. According to New Spirit member, junior, Christine Quito, "Chanteurs and New Spirit [are divided] into little groups of three [with each] group assigned to either host a show choir or to other tasks like sound or backstage crew." The hosts are given the job are getting acquainted with each of the choir groups they invited; throughout the duration of the event, the hosts are obligated to stay with the choir groups they are assigned to assist them with any general performance needs or questions the other groups may have. Each assigned group is also in charge in of preparing posters and goody bags for the other performers. Other duties include giving tours of the performance site, showing the choir groups specific warm-up rooms, seats, and backstage props.
    Christine said that with "this being Mr. [first name] Maxson's last year, I'm really hoping that we can make this a very memorable Pow Wow for him." After finishing teaching this year, Mr. Maxson will be retiring from his job as AHS choir director--the position he held for over 30 years. (year, Chanteurs/ New Spirit) Susanna Whang described Pow Wow as a "fun experience where you get to have fun and meet people who have the same interests that you do."

    tickets are $10.
    Aztec Singers is correct.
    Rollie is Mr. Maxson's first name; his title is Director.
    Susanna is a junior from Chanteurs.

    those are my factual edits (:

    ermmmm i don't feel like copy-editing right now cuz i just did two articles... so ill give you minor edits that popped out for now. (: but i checked at it starts at 6:30, according to Maxson. also, remember its Mar. 19. Da Doo Ron Ron is correct. But can you replace You Don't Own Me with Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend? ahaha i like that song more Wink

    mmmm careful also on tenses. you're not consistent.

    write "junior ___ member, [insert name]" even tho its awk

    try to introduce mr. maxson's name earlier in the article; that way when you get to christine's quote, you won't have to put in all the brackets.

    Both Chanteurs and New Spirit took up the role of hosting and basically running this entire event. Even though playing the host came with many preparations to be taken care of, the members of both choir groups eagerly embraced their many duties. According to junior New Spirit member Christine Quito, "Chanteurs and New Spirit [were divided] into little groups of three, [with each] group assigned to either host a show choir or to other tasks like sound or backstage crew." The hosts were given the job are getting acquainted with each of the choir groups they invited; throughout the duration of the event, the hosts were obligated to stay with the choir groups they were assigned to assist them with any general performance needs or questions the other groups may have. Each assigned group was also in charge of preparing posters and goody bags for the other performers. Other duties included giving tours of the performance site, showing the choir groups specific warm-up rooms, seats, and backstage props.
    After this last year of instructing Chanteurs and New Spirit, Director Mr. Rollie Maxson will be retiring from his job as AHS choir director--the position he held for over 30 years, so Christine was "really hoping that [Chanteurs and New Spirit made] this a very memorable Pow Wow for him." Other members had their own positive opinions about Pow Wow; junior Chanteurs member Susanna Whang said that it was a "fun experience where you get to have fun and meet people who have the same interests that you do." Junior Chanteurs member Stephanie Youssef described Pow Wow as "one of the highlights of [her] entire year" and that she can "never manage to find anything that makes me happier than when Pow Wow comes around." After witnessing this amazing performance by Chanteurs and New Spirit, we are all anticipating the many more noteworthy performances that are sure to come.

    Chanteurs and New Spirit Pow Wow

    Post  eileenchow on Thu Mar 18, 2010 11:55 am

    First, picture the talented members of Chanteurs and New Spirit, with their skillful performances of various songs and dance. Now, throw in multiple show choirs from all over Southern California, a packed performance site, and many displays of singing and dancing into the equation. If you mix all of these elements together, you now have a fairly accurate depiction of the Chanteurs and New Spirit's biggest event of the year. Featuring all of the previously mentioned components and more, the Big "Pow Wow" event, hosted by Chanteurs and New Spirit, truly lived up to its name.
    Pow Wow, which junior New Spirit member Megan Truong described as one of the "most fun and looked forward day of the year," occurred this year on Friday, Mar. 19 at the San Gabriel Valley Mission Playhouse. Tickets for this event were sold for $10. Starting from 6:30 p.m., audience members were presented with multitudes of musical performances by show choirs throughout California, including performances from our very own Chanteurs and New Spirit. Chanteurs sang songs such as "Seize the Day," "Let the River Run," and "Rock This Town." New Spirit also performed beautifully, with their songs, "Lollipop," "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend," "Da Doo Ron Ron," and more. The other show choir groups also displayed their own performances; some groups that Chanteurs and New Spirit invited to this event ranged from the John Burroughs "Powerhouse" and Brea Olinda "Masquerade." Junior Chanteurs member, Vania Wang remarked, "It'll be interesting to see and Brea Olinda, which are ranked as two of California's top show choirs, battle it out for first." Some other invited groups include Mark Keppel's "Aztec Singers," Bonita Vista's "The Music Machine," and Diamond Bar's "Marquis."

    Other than Pow Wow, Chanteurs and New Spirit also has achieved many other praiseworthy accomplishments: Chanteurs won first place and also obtained the Outstanding Musicianship Award at the Brea Olinda and Diamond Bar Tournament. New Spirit won second overall at the Women’s Show Choir Division at Brea. After hearing about all of these amazing achievements by Chanteurs and New Spirit, we are all anticipating the many more noteworthy performances that are sure to come.
