"I wanted to be a part of the Jills, because it's such a time-honored tradition," shares Bailey Mcclelland, BHHS student. The Jills, a small, all-girls audition choir, celebrates 60 years of musical excellence.
"The reason I wanted to be in the Jills was I liked that it was a smaller group, so we could do different pieces than we would normally do in Choir," says Nivey Nithiyananthan, BHHS student. "The Jills perform pieces from all around the world. I've enjoyed singing pieces from Czechoslovakia, African pieces in Swahili, and a lot of Latin music, adds Mcclelland.
In addition to singing, students learned to read music and play the handbells. "We taught ourselves Carol of the Bells on the bells," Sophie Beeckman, BHHS student shares.
