On December 17th evening, CAISL Choir and Orchestra students from 5th to 12th grades took the stage for the traditional Winter Concert. Orchestra opened the musical show, with wonderfully played carols, Hanukka and Kwanzaa melodies. There was even a not so traditional song "This is Halloween", from the movie "Nightmare before Christmas", and a playful interpretation of the Toy Symphony, using toy instruments.
While the Choirs were getting ready to go on stage, IB Music students played together a harmony between cello, piano, percussion and voice that got the warmest applause from the audience.
Grade 5, Middle and High School Choirs carried on the concert, presenting well known holiday songs, but also medieval and classical melodies. For the great finale, all choir students were joined on stage and sang "Dona Nobis Pacem", a perfect way to end the show and wish all families present a peaceful Holiday season.
Congratulations to all participating students and to our Choir and Orchestra teachers for their hard work and for this great concert.
