Christmas carols, cheesecake, and coffee anyone?

Come and watch the Christmas Coffee Concert, Dec. 18.

Christmas is less than 10 days away, and already things are going wild. People are busy buying and wrapping gifts, decorating the tree, planning office parties, and spending time with friends and family. What’s a better way to relax and unwind from all the stress than listening to all-time favorite Christmas carols performed by Hamilton high school students?

On Tuesday, Dec. 18, Honor’s choir, Women’s Chorale, and the Musical Theatre class will get together once more to spread some Christmas cheer through their singing.

Combined carols that will be sung are ” Grown Up Christmas Last” and the “Hallelujah Chorus”.

MTC will be singing “Happy Holiday/White Christmas”, “Coventry Carol”, and “Old St. Nick takes a Rockin’ Trip”.

Women’s Chorale will sing “The Sleigh”, “Silver Bells”, “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”, “Ogo ni Fun Oluwa”, and “No Time to Diet.”

As tradition, Honors Choir will sing to us “Carol of the Bells” a cappella along with “El Desembre Congelat”, “The 12 days of Christmas”, “Pat-a-Pan Salsa”, and “The Christmas Song”.

“I’m overwhelmed with all the difficult pieces but I think Honors will do just fine,” Honors choir member Derick Bennett said, “But we still have a lot to work on with expression.”

While the fall concert consisted of one part, the Christmas concert is two parts.

Not only are the choirs singing with their own classes and together as one, after the main concert, selected students will perform their own carols that they have picked as soloists or in small groups. While these preformances are going on, the audience will have the choice on whether or not they would like coffee and/or cheesecake to go along with it.

One trio from women’s chorale, Taylor Sanders, Jessie Walters, and Allison Egel, will be ready to show their stuff.

“We have been working together after school,” Sanders said, “once we stayed after for 3 hours practicing.”

The main concert will be at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.  It’s free and doesn’t require a ticket.

For audience members who want to stick around longer and hear other songs, the show will move into the cafeteria.  These performances cost $8 with cheesecake and coffee. For those who just want to listen to the music, the cost is $5. Tables can be reserved for large groups if asked for $2 per table.

Merry Christmas!
