Tis the Season!

Ms. Stacey Porter
Music Teacher

It’s that time of year again – time to begin preparations for the Advent Program! The Advent Program is a school-wide musical performance on December 19th at 1PM and 7PM, and requires lots of advanced preparation for success. The seventh graders will be playing one piece per split, and they have begun working on their music already. They will also our readers for the event. The program will focus on the tradition of using a Jesse Tree to prepare our hearts for Christmas. For each day of Advent, ornate ornaments are hung while bible passages are read and songs can be sung. It’s a beautiful tradition that we look forward to sharing with you and your families.

The Honor Choir is singing O Sapientia, Come, Lord Jesus and Wade in the Water. Here are recordings of these songs for them to listen to at home. Listening and practicing at home will give them the confidence to sing out at their performance.
