The Desire to Sing Together
Posted 04/10/2013 09:33AM
If you spend any amount of time on the High Mowing campus, you will soon realize that music is everywhere. Students practice their instruments, perform in Sinfonietta and ensembles, and dance to music in plays, performances, and morning exercises. But, an equal presence is our students’ ability and desire to sing. They sing at roll call, around campfires and at Coffee House. And, it is clear that they want to sing even more!

When Sophia Darby ’13 arrived on campus at the start of her junior year she brought with her a passion for choral music, songwriting and arrangement. High Mowing offered the support to bring her interests to life. From a simple desire to sing with classmates grew High Mowing’s A Cappella group — MRP (Music Related Puns). Now in its second year, MRP has doubled in size. The group works together under Sophia’s leadership exploring music and performing original, intricate arrangements.

MRP’s singing fills the Big Room during the afternoons each week. High Notes is happy to offer you the opportunity to be a “fly on the wall” at one of their afternoon practice sessions. Just click on the photo below to hear songs in progress and the thoughts and ideas of Sophia, herself. If you would like to hear the group in a live performance, please come to High Mowing on April 12 at 7:00 p.m. Or, join us for May Day on April 27, where they will also perform.

Sophia Darby talks about how she formed the a capella group and we get a glimpse of their practice in the video.
