A Mighty Song concludes a mighty career for Choral Director Mrs. Lutz
With a passionate, emotional, and even funny combined effort, the Men’s and Women’s Ensembles said goodbye and good luck to MRHS Choral Director Deborah Lutz at her final spring concert on Thursday, May 14.
Ms. Lutz will retire in June after a 42 year career that has spanned states, continents, and even oceans with her impact.
The final show was aptly titled Sing a Mighty Song and did not disappoint. Lighthearted show tunes from the Pirates of Penzance and South Pacific as well as rock tunes from decades gone by allowed the ensembles to showcase their versatility.
However, it was the Phantom of the Opera Medley that brought a standing ovation from the audience. From lighting to solos, the mood and atmosphere were powerful.
