Back and better than ever, the Lyrical Fight Club (LFC) is filling the halls with the sound of music.
Brother Rice Band Director Al Rendak teaches the Lyrical Fight Club, also known as chorus class, every Wednesday after school. The class teaches students about octave, pitch, tone, music notes, and how to sing in blissful harmony. With Mr. Rendak’s fourth year teaching the class, he continues to make an impact on his singing Crusaders.
Senior Ethan McCarthy said, “LFC is a really nice addition to my schedule. It’s only once a week after school, so it does not take up a ton of time. Mr. Rendak is a great conductor and teacher, and shows his passion in every song he teaches us.”
Have you heard these angelic harmonies? You sure have! The Lyrical Fight Club blesses all Men of Edmund by singing at every school mass and prayer service. “The chorus always adds to the spirit of the mass,” said theology teacher Joe Augustyn.
Senior Tim Novick said, “Being a part of chorus is a great experience because I enjoy contributing to the musical aspect of mass. I love being surrounded by the music and sharing this form of prayer with the rest of the school. Having just joined chorus this year, I wish that I had been a part of in sooner, but am glad that I have the opportunity now.”
Interested in joining this exciting elective? You can join chorus at any point in the year, just head down to the band room and talk to Mr. Rendak about adding the class your schedule.
