THS Music Students Get Some “Aires”

Are you a fan of One Direction? If you attended the Dartmouth Aires performance, you may find yourself abandoning the British boy band for the rainbow clad men’s choir.

Trooping all the way from New Hampshire, the Aires came to THS. The troop included THS alumni, Max Gottschall. Gottschall is a sophomore at Dartmouth College, where the Aires group originates.

The well-known choir arrived at THS for a performance periods 7 and 8. As an opener, THS’s chamber choir performed “Shambala,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “Deck the Halls.”

The Aires group opened with “Everybody Talks” by Neon Trees, with an accompaniment of snapping and “Ignition (remix). The Aires continued their performance with a host of jazzy shows tunes and classic Christmas carols, including “Let It Snow” and a “Charlie Brown Christmas carol,” but not before singing a tribute to THS alumnus Max Gottschall’s sister, Gabby.

Max Gottschall stated that he was out voted 15 to 1 on composing a song for his sister, as one of the Aires seemed to have taken a liking to her.

The show carried on with an overflowing addition of energetic dancing. The Aires even got the crowd to join in on the fun! When it was time to leave, all of the students joined in, begging for an encore. The Aires obliged, answered questions, and turning down marriage proposals (to some students’ disappointment).

In a question and answer session following the performance, Aires member stated that the group’s bright colors were a way to get the crowd excited and into the music. It seemed to work very well. As the Aires left, Trumbull high students ended their day on a high note.

    I wouldn’t draw a comparison between the Aires and One Direction, of all groups… still. It makes me sad I won’t ever be even 1/4 of 9/568 of 2/9002 as amazing as they were.

    I’m not going to lie. I totally “fan-girled” when I saw the Aires. They’re all so beautiful! I mean, they ARE talented too… I loved this assembly. I’m already in 2 choirs at school, so I knew I would. They were so energetic, which made ME energetic. Each of them was a star in their own way. I loved their “smooth moves”, and their off beat, preppy attire. I could really listen to them all day.
