One Octave has provided a talented girl a home to expand her horizons and pursue her passion.

One Octave is an all female choir group at Canfield High School that explores the world of combing female voices of different ranges coming together to make music.

Jaclyn Edelstein has been singing since she was only two years old. She has sang in talent shows all throughout middle school and decided to further her ability and sound by joining a higher level choir. Jaclyn also plays instruments such as piano and guitar. Playing instruments has helped her singing because it helped her learn how to read music faster.

“I’ve always looked up to those who were in higher choirs and was always motivated to try out after watching them perform. The talent and hard work of the choir shines with every performance,” said Edelstein

The girls in One Octave have a passion for music that they wish to share and show. The girls sing at football/basketball games, dinner theatres, concerts etc. Being around people who have such a strong love for music has molded her into a better singer and performer.

“I feel more relaxed and comfortable singing in a group compared to singing individually,” said Edelstein.

Being apart of this choir does involve minimal solo singing which edelstein said makes her anxious and nervous. However, Edelstein loves singing in groups and singing the music she writes on her own. One octave is a motivated group of girls whose voices come together and form beautiful harmonies and balance within their singing.

“Choir is just another way of doing what I love with people who share the same goals and aspirations,” she concluded.
