Heartfelt Holiday Messages from Upper School Chorus
The Upper School chorus delivered an emotional message of hope, joy, and peace during a traditional annual concert that saw its last performance in Founder’s Hall. The full chorus performed eight songs, including “Nothin’ Gonna Stumble My Feet” and “Riu Riu Chiu,” to “O Come O Come Emmanuel” and “Glow.” The Men’s Chorus sang the traditional spiritual “Sinner Man” and the Women’s Chorus sang “Carol of the Birds” and “Adiemus.” The Chamber Ensemble sang five songs, including, “Across the Universe,” “True Colors,” and “Baba Yetu.” In a long-running tradition, fine and performing arts department chair Tina Kuhlman invited alumni in the audience to perform the traditional trio of songs that have closed the winter concert for more than two decades — “Al Shlosha D’varim,” “Night of Silence,” and “Joy to the World.” Kuhlman also shared with the audience that the night’s concert was the chorus’ last in Founder’s. The spring concert will take place in Seven Hills’ soon-to-be-completed Schiff Center. Congrats to our student vocalists, Kuhlman, and accompanist Lynne Miller.
