For some of the musicians in the Honeoye Falls-Lima High School’s Unplugged Concert on June 14, it was their final time on the stage in the high school auditorium.

This year, the concert featured 20 songs. Some were solos, some duets and some were group performances. Seniors Owen Dack and Maia Gathercole were the hosts of the concert, which is the work of the students as some of them run the lights and sound while others are on the stage crew. This is the third year of the concert.

The first to perform were twin sisters Maeve Connors and Claire Connors who sang Rainbow by Kacey Musgraves. Sarah McLaughlin and Tali Camobreco were up next with October by The Crane Wives. Then it was Madison Fleming, Gathercole and Ava Youngblut (aka Donna and the Dynamos in this year’s spring musical Mamma Mia!) with a medley of songs by Adele. Sophie Stanley sang Dear Soulmate by Laufey. Fleming returned to the stage with Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri. Sam Roth, Ben Dieter and Tristan VanderVen collaborated on Manic Depression by Jimi Hendrix. Kaylee Henshaw, Taber Gloor, Kate Gabrielsen and Bria Torpey performed Graceland Too by Phoebe Bridgers. Edward Brown, Calvin Burke, Henry Burke, Matt Ross and Braeden Weaver took the stage with an original song by one of the group titled 45 Minutes. Paige Moscicki performed Champagne Problems by Taylor Swift. Maggie Grann sang Snow Angel by Renee Rapp. Sophie Torres and Youngblut collaborated on I Still Believe by A. Boublil and C. Schonberg. Dack, Fleming, Weaver, Jackson Carmichiel and Noah Close teamed up for Have You Ever Seen the Rain by CCR. Amelia Somers and Jenna Quinn did a duet of To Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan. Claire Connors, Maeve Connors, Henshaw and Youngblut joined with Mike Ruff for All My Ghosts by Lizzy McAlpine. Raegan Banker and Peterah Deisenroth performed Goddess by Laufey. Jenna Quinn sang Almost There by Princess and the Frog. The group of Torpey, Weaver, Close, Carmichiel, Andrew Stansbury, Gabrielsen and Aiden McLean collaborated on a rendition of Autumn Leaves by J. Kosna, J. Mercer and J. Prevert. Gabrielsen and Gloor combined on the song Unknown by Hozier. The Bellas Finals, arranged by Meritz Kulbs, was performed by the group 5 Second Rule consisting of Dack, Fleming, Somers, Quinn and Ellen Burke. The quintet of Carmichiel, Close, Dack, Roth and Weaver closed the concert with Stacy’s Mom by Fountains of Wayne.
