Artists of the week
The St. James Schools Performers of the Week this week are Grade 11 students Angel Perez Villalobos and Devon Olsen.
Villalobos sings Tenor 2 in the Concert Choir and is the conductor of the tenor section. It is also a limited edition, madrigals and concert choir.
Villalobos’ favorite memory is singing a solo in choir. This year, he hopes to be able to sing louder than he can already. Villalobos’ favorite song is Here There Delilah by Plain White T’s.
Olsen is a huge fan of singing the bass part, he says it’s because the people in his section are great people and the choir is just a fun time for all of us.
Olsen is part of Football, Basketball, Tennis, Team-Up, Choir, Band, Madrigals, Limited Edition, Jazz Unlimited. Her favorite memory of the choir has to be when the choir visited the Southern Choir Festival earlier this year. Olsen said they got to hear other choirs and it was just a good time overall.
Something Olsen hopes to accomplish this school year is to earn as many letters and accomplishments as possible through extracurricular activities.
Olsen’s favorite track he’s ever done has to be when he had a solo in one of their backing vocals with last year’s senior Kaylem Velasco titled Fall On Me. Oslen said he had learned a lot from the play and enjoyed singing with this group of seniors that year as a whole.
