It seems like yesterday when I first stepped into the choral room on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, my first day in the Upper School. I remember how excited I was to start learning a new skill, singing, but I was also nervous because I was the only sophomore surrounded by countless juniors and veteran seniors. However, those juniors, now seniors, would become some of the people I am closest to in my time at Belmont Hill. Throughout the past two years, the members of the B-Flats in the Class of 2020 have shown irreplaceable value to the team. The music community along with the whole school will miss their contributions. Even though we were able to do some singing in the online period, we sadly all missed out on the opportunity spring, our busiest season, would have brought. The rewarding feeling of standing up and making music for the graduating class and prize winners is like no other, and I wish we could have celebrated our peers’ hard work together in person. That being said, I know that the energy and enthusiasm over the last two years in addition to the countless memorable moments have all combined to make B Flats one of my favorite activities over the past two years.
Thanks to every one of you – Rowan, Aidan, Bobby, Archie, Joe, James, Preston, and Jack – for the great memories together. I will try to incorporate some of the lessons that you all have taught me to help the next generation of singers to enjoy the group as much as I did.
