Accra Technical University Choir shows class

Though students of Accra Technical University (ATU) have enrolled solely  to pursue academic programmes, they are, on the contrary, endowed with varied talents, and hold fast to a common purpose, to sing to the glory of God. 

The students  found time out of their busy academic  schedules to rehearse songs  from different composers, in varied languages, and to sing with all their hearts and minds.

Indeed, the songs they sang , made a perfect blend  into lovely melodious tunes, capable to move  the most hardened hearts and  eventually consoled hearts that had been tormented.

The  ATU Choir stands out very tall at every gathering to display  their uniqueness and normally leave many astounded.

Leaving up to their pedigree , the choir was able to electrify the school’s auditorium which was packed  to capacity for the official launch of  A TU’s 70th anniversary celebration.

A  few of the songs they had rendered  at the function included, “To God be the glory,” ” Praise Him, ”  ” Se biribi papabi wo aseda  kyea,” among others.

Some of the spectators who could not control their emotions  joined in  singing  the melodious songs, an expression of exceeding  joy in their hearts.

The students who had endeared themselves to the gathering,  were enthralled that they had succeeded in making the gathering  glad.

Ms Juliet Esinam Nutakor, a chorister said she  loved singing and was highly elated to be a member of the choir.

Ms Francisca Ama Atiglinyi, another chorister, said she was delighted to be part of the team.

Mr Paul Mettle, the Music Director of the choir, said rehearsals were held once every week and that  he was happy about alacrity with which students approached the  time allotted for  rehearsals. 

He was optimistic  that the choir would go places provided  students maintained the same level of  enthusiasm and their love for music.

It would be recalled that at the university’s recent congregation, the choir was at its best since it was able to keep some of the students glued to their seats minutes after the programme, to enjoy the music, while  others  joined  in dancing  to the interesting tunes.
