Our Winter Concert is coming in two weeks and the Children’s House children are hard at work practicing. Each year the concert opens with our youngest students (almost 90 of them!), dressed in their most special holiday outfits and fired up with excitement, singing on stage. Each year the Winter Concert audience is delighted by their bow ties, sequined skirts, sparkly eyes and beautiful voices.
In the weeks before the magical event, the children and guides practice every day to memorize the lyrics, follow the tune and sing in unison.
This year the program will open with our Extended Day children singing “All I Want For Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey, complete with the high notes! Then the Children’s House Vocal Company (not an official name… yet 😉) will sing “Jingle Bells,” “Let it Snow!,” “Hanukkah,” “Step Into Christmas” by Elton John, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “The Happy New Year Song.”
There will be dancing, tambourine accompaniment, lots and lots of jazz hands and likely a shenanigan or two. We cannot wait for this year’s Winter Concert—in the meantime, enjoy these photos of some of our favorite young people during concert practice!
