LACW and LAHS singers to join forces

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

An upcoming concert features collaboration not only between two musical entities but also multiple generations.

The Los Alamos Community Winds and the Los Alamos High School choirs are joining forces to perform Carol Orff’s “Carmina Burana” at 7 p.m. May 22 at Duane Smith Auditorium.

Not only are high school students taking part in this community concert, three teenagers are stepping into the spotlight as solo singers.

Sophomore Bob Collom is one of the soloists. He will perform a movement titled “Tempus Sest Iocundum.” Collom described this movement as being fun. “It’s really fun,” he said. “It’s not a serious, intense solo.”

Collom said it is his first time performing with the community winds and he is excited to share the stage with the ensemble. “I am kind of excited,” Collom said. “It’s my first solo with the high school choir and so it’s cool to get (a solo) and sing it on this scale.”

Senior Yasmeen Lookman is another soloist for the concert. She will sing “In Trutina.”

“It’s very beautiful,” Lookman said about her piece. “It’s slower than most of the movements in the work. Slow and kind of sorrowful but it’s beautiful.”
