Last night our middle schoolers took over the Unionville High School auditorium and enchanted the audience with traditional and contemporary holiday music. Principal Tim Hoffman kicked off the evening with an interactive recitation of the first few lines from the 1945 song “Let It Snow“, paying homage to the frightful weather that we all encountered driving to the concert.
We were then entertained by the 6th grade choir, 7th/8th grade choir, men’s ensemble, 6th grade orchestra, and 7th/8th grade orchestra. The kids and their adult directors/conductors did a great job; I especially enjoyed O America by the combined choir and the classical piece played by the 7th/8th grade orchestra. All of the performers came back on stage for the finale, a great rendition of “We Are the World“, which I thought was the best performance of the night. Kudos to all for putting on a great show.
