Singing for a Lifetime

Nickolas Riedel (12) has been a member of the Marian Choir for all four years of his high school career.  He loves singing and he rarely stops when choir class ends.  Riedel enjoys being in the choir class and looks forward to it every day, he explains that, “It’s very relaxing. It’s the time of day when I can unwind and enjoy something besides school, something that I really love.”  Riedel states, “I’ve liked music my whole life, in choir I sing and play the piano which are my favorite parts of music.”
Riedel uses his music skills at Mass at Marian, where he can be heard playing the piano and singing. He enjoys singing to God and connecting piano to God, and his favorite song to sing during Mass is “Lift Up Your Hearts”.  Riedel also enjoyed going on the choir tour, his favorite parts were being with a group of people that also enjoy singing and hanging out with his friends. His favorite song that he performed at Marian came from the choir tour and it is “Song of the Man” from the movie Tarzan.  Riedel feels that “choir is something everyone should give a try, whether they can sing or not.  It’s a class that often gets overlooked.” As Riedel prepares to enter his freshman year at Purdue University in Indiana, there is no doubt that he will take his love of music with him.
