Crestview High School chorus makes its 2013-14 debut (VIDEO)

The mass chorus performance of the "Star Spangled Banner" was a crowd-pleaser because, as one father put it, "it was sung right, not like those Hollywood stars who think they have to embellish it."

The combined chorus also performed the school's alma mater in the round, which brought the young vocalists close to many audience members.

Each of the individual choirs performed selections, including two from "Les Misérables," which Lusk called "an homage to the band," as the international musical hit is the theme of the Big Red Machine's halftime show this season.

The Women's Choir's "On My Own" and the Men's Choir's "Bring Him Home" were both delightful, and Chorale's performance of "El Capotín" was rousing fun.

The two show choirs, the all-women Destiny, sparkling in their tie-dyed T-shirts, and mixed Chanticleer, gave hints of exciting music to come with performances of "Stranger" and "Everybody Talks," respectively.

"We're going to be busy this year," Lusk said. "The kids are doing a pretty good job so far."
