Junior and Senior High Hold Annual Christmas Concert

January 12, 2021

By: Natalie Brabec, a junior at Leigh High School

 

Students in band and choir in grades 7-12 came together to sing and play Christmas music for the community on Friday, December 18 in the Leigh High School gym. Even though only parents could come to enjoy the music, grandparents and other family and community members were able to listen to the concert via livestream. There were eight songs sung by the Junior High and Senior High Choir and four songs played by the Junior High and Senior High Band. This year the director for choir was Mrs. Cindy Settje, and the director for the band was Mrs. Liz Kowalski. 

At the start of this school year, nobody had any idea what was going to happen and whether things like singing would be able to happen.  Because of that, this concert was extra special because everyone was very grateful for getting the chance to stay in school and be able to perform at the concert. 

Junior Makenna Held said, “The Christmas Concert this year was a little bit different than previous years, but it didn’t stop us from singing our traditional Christmas carols and having fun. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!” 

Some of the songs that were performed at the concert by the junior high were “The First Noel,” “Go Tell It On the Mountain,” “Happy Holidays,” “What Child Is This,” “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Blue Christmas.” The Senior High Choir Sang two songs including “The Joy of Christmas” and “A Winter Medley” as a full chorus, and the girls sang “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and the boys sang “Little Saint Nick.” The Senior High Band performed “Twenty Carols in Two Minutes” and “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo.”

The choir director, Mrs Settje, said “I was very happy with the outcome of the concert.  I am hoping we were able to spread a little Christmas cheer this year whether you got to listen to the concert in person or via YouTube/stream.  We sang difficult songs, so I was proud of how hard the students kept working.”
