Christmas Choir Cheer

As an event used to generate holiday spirit and showcase talented students, the Winter Choir Concert will be the culmination of the hard work that Diamond Bar High School choir students have put into preparing for the performance.

“We worked really, really hard on preparing for the concert. Although it might seem like the concert might be cheesy because we are singing a lot of Christmas songs, its actually very fun and the songs really bring around some holiday spirit,” shares senior Ploy Wongthavarawat. The Winter Choir Concert will feature all four choir groups (Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Solitaire, and Marquis) singing and dancing to a repertoire of diverse music.

The concert is overall holiday themed, with traditional Christmas tunes, but will also feature a few classical songs. All alumni and staff members are also invited to sing along to the Christmas tunes on stage with the choir members.

A few of the seasonal songs included are “Have Yourself a Merry Christmas” and “Winter Wonderland,” while “Hallelujah Chorus” from the Messiah, by George Frederic Handel will be the finale. To further enhance performances, bass drums will be added to some song selections.

“Students have been working very hard to prepare [for the concert] and we hope that students and staff will come to get into the holiday spirit,” states choir teacher Patty Breitag

The concert will be held at 7 p.m. in the theatre on Dec. 13 and 14. Tickets will be sold in the choir room and will be $8 for students and $10 for adults.

The Winter Choir Concert will be an exciting, Christmas-themed night filled with music and interesting performances. It is an event that will be sure to provide students and adults alike with an evening of entertainment and also display the wealth of talent in the DBHS’s choir groups.
