Alex praised Lusk for pushing choir members beyond the comfort of familiar music.

"I’ve sung a lot of stuff I never would’ve sung had it not been for him," Alex said. "I don’t know what other setting I might’ve sung ‘Lacrimosa’ in," he added, referring to the Mozart piece performed admirably by Chorale, the large, elite mixed chorus.

Chorale's performance of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody” was an energetic highlight, with grand piano accompaniment and a three-piece rock ensemble, drawing the audience to its feet at conclusion.

Senior Choir Member Brittany Agee was named the Senior Choral Award Winner and will perform the alma mater at graduation. She will return next year to solo at the spring concert, as last year's top senior, Tiffani Souders, did Thursday night.

Though Destiny and Chanticleer numbers included the latter's "Some Nights," which gave otherwise quiet, dependable Paolo Hora a chance to cut loose with an amazing solo, Alex said a favorite song was Chorale's "For Good," from the Broadway hit "Wicked."

"I sang it my freshman year, so it really rounded out my high school experience," he said.
