The sound of (Christmas) music


The Junior Treble Choir ended the song “Here Comes Santa Claus” on an excited note. The group put on dozens of cheerful facial expressions and hand movements during the song.

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear, and Christmas cheer spread like a snowstorm on Sunday, Dec. 14, when the choral department performed their holiday concert.

“[Bells has] become like a family with the amount of time we spend together working on everything.  It’s fun to see our hard work come together at the concert and just blow all the people away when we perform,” Katherine Veronesi (10) said.

The concert began with a piano solo played by Andrew Kasper (9).  This set the tone for an afternoon of holiday spirit.

“Singing all the fun Christmas songs and seeing all the ugly sweaters put me in the Christmas mood.  I think the audience felt the same way,” Kassandra Hansen (9) said.

The choirs, bells, Trebleaires and Counterpoints performed popular Christmas songs such as “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Here Comes Santa Claus.”  At the end of each piece the audience erupted with applause.

“[The choirs] did awesome.  [I am] very happy about this holiday concert.  They did really, really well,” Ms. Sandra Hobbs, Music, said.

The next seasonal concert will take place on May 10 in the Lake Central gym.
