Choir and orchestra groups collaborated for a holiday concert. Cookies and hot chocolate were sold before the show and during intermission to support the choir program.

“Cookies are also a traditional part of the season, and we like to provide some ambiance in the lobby before the concert,” Choral Director Justin Rosser said.

The main goal of the performance was to show off what the students can do, but, according to Rosser, it also helps the students learn the importance of formality.

“The best part of the performance was the appropriate appreciation the audience showed to our students,” Rosser said. “They were respectful and mindful of the formality of the evening.”

Women’s Chamber Choir and Chamber Orchestra performed “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” “Song of the Universal” and “Angels from the Realms of Glory”. Chamber choir and chamber orchestra performed “And the Glory of the Lord,” “And He shall purify,” “Glory to God” and “Hallelujah”.

My favorite part of performing is when I get a chance to admire the faces in the crowd,” senior Bernardo Duran-Fonseca said. “Seeing everyone and how much they enjoy it is really what keeps me going strong on a stage. Especially when you do something amazing and the audience erupts with all kinds of cheering.”

Josue Marroquin, Renee Martin, and Duran-Fonseca all performed solos. They had been preparing for this concert for since the beginning of the school year.

Even those who did not perform solos enjoyed the holiday experience.

The feeling you get when you play, can’t be compared to anything else when you’re with friends making music,”junior Hailey Livingston said.

Soloist Duran-Fonseca said the evening was memorable for him.

“Christmas music is great and all… But hearing it before Halloween and Thanksgiving can really drive you crazy sometimes,” Duran-Fonseca said.
