Choir’s Winter Wonderland

Camille de Guzman, Senior

On December 13th, the Nogales Choral Program had its Winter Concert featuring the Telesis Choir in the MPR 

Many families came to support this eagerly anticipated show. Cecily Rosas, senior and a student president shares “The concert was a cute and wholesome experience, considering it was stressful preparing for it.”

After the two choirs sang “Star Spangled Banner”, the Telesis choir presented a nice rendition of “The Colors of Christmas”, “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch” and “Last Christmas” with soloists, Liliana Durbin and Angel Esparza.

Malayna Sabas, performed “Grown Up Christmas List” dedicated to the choral program and to her mother, which brought positivity to the event, considering the song is about creating world peace. Malayna was proud of her performance: “I felt happy that I was able to perform for my mom and for everyone else to enjoy and feel the Christmas spirit.”

The last part of the special consisted of performances, Julianna Albert and Malayna Sabas who sang “All I Want For Christmas Is You” as a duet.

Chamber Singers then sang “Angels We Have Heard On High”, “Nativity Carol”, “Breath of Heaven”, featuring another solo by Malayna Sabas, “The First Noel,” and “Laudate Dominum,” with a solo by Marcos Monroy.

Nogales Singers then joined with Chambers to sing “Silent Night,” “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas,” and “Fum, Fum, Fum”.

To conclude the concert, all choirs performed “Ave Maria,” which is a tradition a very special piece for the choral program.

Choir director, Mr. Rodriguez stated, “I felt like it was definitely an improvement from the last concert and it was an enjoyable evening to make music with my students.”

The Choral Music Singers are looking forward to practicing for future musical engagements, second semester.
