“Humans of the Sacred Heart” – Claire Miller ’22

How long have you participated in the Madrigals?

“I have participated in the Madrigals since sophomore year, but it is not my first singing group.  I first started singing in fifth grade in Madeleines, and as I got older, I became a member of Nightingales, A Cabellas, and now Madrigals.  Each of these groups helped me develop my love of singing.  My experience singing at Sacred Heart Greenwich has inspired me to join a singing group in college.”

After having the Christmas concert virtually last year, what are you most excited about this year?

“After having the Christmas concert virtually last year, I am most excited to perform in front of an audience.  Last year required flexibility and adaptation in learning how to sing apart from other people and even record our voices alone.  I truly missed the collaboration and friendships that are such an important part of Madrigals.  As a result, I am so excited and grateful to be able to perform in person this year.  Not only will it help us get more into the holiday spirit, but it will feel rewarding after all of the hard work we have put in this year.”

Why is performing in the Christmas concert meaningful to you?

“Performing in the Christmas concert is meaningful to me because it contributes to the sense of community that is such an important part of Sacred Heart.  I love how it unites different grades and celebrates each of their accomplishments.  I also appreciate participating in the Christmas Concert because it has been a tradition for many years, and as a result, helps connect us with all of the Sacred Heart alumnae.”
