Still, Gareth is buoyed by the turnout. The challenges Gareth now faces are dealing with a mixture of boys whose voices have not yet changed and those whose voices have changed, and bringing those two aspects together into one cohesive choir. He is most concerned about keeping the younger boys, who he fears will be ridiculed for sounding like girls. As weeks pass, Gareth has another challenge of maintaining energy level and concentration amongst the boys, who are not used to extended focus. He decides with six weeks remaining in the term to throw the boys into the deep end by having them perform at the Summer Show, a paid event for teachers and parents at term's end. This concert is important as the first public performance for the choir. Gareth wants to place the choir in its best light while realizing what their capabilities are. He is surprised at the enthusiasm the boys show in volunteering for the two solos. To support singing at the school, Gareth also believes the teachers need to lead by example. As such, Gareth starts a staff choir. He wants to recruit as many teachers as possible, but specifically those who have the most "alpha male" influence, namely those in the physical education department, and Head of Grades 9 & 10, Alex Foreman. Gareth won't get a self-professed non-singing Mr. Foreman into the choir without a fight. But Gareth has a special weapon up his sleeve hopefully to convince Mr. Foreman. Written by Huggo See less
