You walked away today

I keep waiting for your call

I thought this was love

Do you miss me?

I saw your name on a text today

They asked where you’ve been

When I’ll see you again

Do you miss me?

I saw your photo today

As I scrolled through my feed

You were smiling like a fool

Do you miss me?

I thought of you today

We used to sit in that booth

Now the coffee shop is lonely

Do you miss me?

Our song came on 

I guess the radio doesn’t know

My heart hurt a little

Do you miss me?

The movie was good

Sharing popcorn with myself

Who knew it felt like this

Do you miss me?

Long walks on the trails

Only my thoughts for company

My heart is heavier than my feet

Do you miss me?

The party was fun

But I felt out of place

Single in a crowd of couples

Do you miss me?

I went to your work

What was I thinking

You weren’t there to see

Do you miss me?

The reunion was nice

My sister showed off her ring

No one asked about mine

Do you miss me?

One day I’ll move on

My heart won’t have cracks

Love will find me once more

Do I miss you?

Blind dates aren’t so bad

I was nervous, he was kind

I think we’ll go out again

Do I miss you?

He asked for my hand today

A ring on my finger

A song in my heart

Do I miss you?

I stopped waiting for your call

I’m don’t miss you anymore

I found who I was looking for

I hope you miss me now.

The Iowa Central Community College music department has pursued several new venues for performances since Will Lopes began directing the Triton Singers in 2018. This year is no different. After exploring the acoustics of the Crossroads Mall halls, Lopes chose this location for the Triton Singers fall concert, Sacred Sounds.

A combined performance with the Fort Dodge Community Chorus, Iowa Central Alumni, and local instrumental group, Jive for Five, the Triton Singers will be sharing a selection of spirituals, sacred art songs, and upbeat tunes. The Triton Singers is comprised of three vocal performance groups: Triton Choir, Vocal Jazz and the Encore Singers.

By inviting community members to participate in this Sacred Sounds concert, Triton Singers will grow their audience for concert performances and build relationships with other Fort Dodge vocal enthusiasts. Lopes has made community participation a common element in all of his Iowa Central concerts, including his recent day long event, Real Men Sing.

The Fort Dodge community is invited to attend to support the talented students and local performers in this one night event on Monday, September 30 at 7 p.m. Sacred Sounds is free to attend.

Students gathered in the Student Resource Center Thursday for a riveting game of trivia. Teams consisted of five students each, with names like “Hocus Pocus” competing for prizes of t-shirts, gift cards to the College Bookstore, and more.

One of the hosts went by the name Kim Possible. Students had the chance to compete with her trivia knowledge but she consistently bested them.

Trivia categories included questions like naming clips of Dwayne Johnson movies to cartoon characters. A clip of Dwayne Johnson singing “You’re Welcome” from “Moana” was a crowd favorite.

A nerd session was also included to find out who would win individual prizes for the evening. Prizes were awarded to individuals and groups at the end of the evening. Tortilla chips and nacho cheese were provided for students to enjoy during the trivia night.

The next event in the Student Resource Center is Bingo on August 29 at 7:30 p.m.
