Senior Claire Huber Taking Her Final Bow and Prepares for the Next Act


As the last semester of the 2023-2024 school year is right around the corner, Erie seniors are nothing short of excited for this new chapter of their lives, specifically, Claire Huber. Although her contribution to the music and theater department of EHS will make her greatly missed, EHS students are excited to see where she will go from here. 

Not only is Huber a part of the Erie High theater program, she is also a part of two choirs here at Erie. 5130 and CR5, they are both auditioned choirs which means they are relatively small and very close knit, Huber adds, “I’ve wanted to be in CR5 since I was in middle school because I just found out it was the top choir that gets to go to Disney.”

Because these choirs are some of the smallest choirs at Erie, the communities are even closer. For the graduating seniors, this makes it that much harder to leave, “I’m going to miss the community in choir, and the music of course, but mostly the community that we build,” Huber continues, “especially in 5130 because 5130 is such a small choir that we have to all be friends with each other or it doesn’t work.” 

Outside of choir, Huber also does EHS theater. Huber comments, “I prefer to be on stage,” in the 2024 spring musical – Catch Me If You Can, she will be playing Paula, the main character’s mother. Some of her past shows included, Nunsense, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and The Marvelous Wonderettes.

Huber is also a current member of a year round theater program in Boulder called Actors Academy for the Performing Arts, “so I’m there like six days a week, I assistant teach dance classes there and I take dance classes there,” she adds. 

Balancing multiple activities, classes, and hobbies can get stressful- especially in the last year of high school, but Huber handles everything with grace and personal touch. 

Her peer, Senior Ella Valania adds, “Claire is so passionate about the things she loves and does everything she can to grow as a person and performer, it’s so admirable to see her balance two choirs, dance, and multiple shows all at once.”

Huber has been an active member and participant of the EHS community as well as the choir and theater community. “She was one of the first people to talk to me outside of my small group of freshmen that year, and helped me expand my friendships to upperclassmen and many of my theater friends nowadays,” Junior Dean Curtis states.

Leaving the place where the majority of the last four years of high school took place can be a stressful experience, but Claire Huber is nothing but excited for what is to come and although the students of Erie are sad to see her go, they are ready to see her take on this next chapter of her life.
