Are you already in that holiday spirit, ready for Christmas? Do you enjoy listening to a few Christmas tunes in time for the holidays soon? Then you probably went to Christmas Choir Concert in the Grove at lunch in the library on December 9th, 2016.
What was Christmas Choir Concert in the Grove you may ask? Well, it was a day where all students and staff members were invited to the library at lunch on December 9th, 2016 to listen to our very own choir groups perform some Christmas-themed tunes that they had prepared for their actual concert a few days before. These tunes included classical tunes like Jingle Bells to not very well known tunes like Angel Choir and the Trumpeter. Although it was a smaller set-up than the actual concert, this was a more casual and festive concert. A concert to mainly celebrate the holiday of Christmas.
At lunch, all the students and staff who wanted to see the concert began bustling in through the library door and began seating themselves. The main library room had been split into two, one for the audience and the other for the choirs who were going to perform. Our music staff, Mr. Angell and Mr. Fawkes have set up the bleachers, speakers, and the rhythm section… everything to make sure that the library may be filled with the holiday spirit!
The performances tonight featured WGSS’s three choir groups: the Concert Choir, the Chamber Choir and the Vocal Jazz group. This concert was mainly an “unplugged” concert (except for one song), to make sure that everything sung in the concert to be solely WGSS choir voices. The audience sat back and listened to the choir members as they ate their lunches. They were in for a real treat!
As the day came to a close, everyone began to leave the library. No matter what situation one may be in, it’s always good to get into that holiday cheer to lift their spirits. Have a wonderful last week of school, Gators! And be sure to thank Mr. Angell for preparing the whole event, he put a lot of work into making this happen. Merry Christmas!
