On December 14, 2021, Trinity Hall hosted its annual festive tradition, the Christmas concert. Presented by the chorus, glee, and instrumental groups, the Christmas concert is a means for students interested in the arts to showcase the creative talents that they have practiced all year long. Choral director Mr. Andrew Bogdan’s favorite Christmas concert tradition is the chorus’ singing of “Silent Night” with the audience!
Unfortunately, due to unprecedented circumstances last year, the Christmas concert was unable to occur in person. However, with the health of the community kept in mind, the community was fortunate enough to pull this event together in a safe, outdoor setting.
With the help of staff and engineering students, the 2021 Christmas concert occurred concurrently with a new tradition: the Christmas light spectacular. Faculty members and students worked together to create unique and memorable festive light show decorations. Gazing at the colorful lights and listening to Christmas music truly inspired guests to get into the Christmas spirit!
Alex Talamayan, senior and glee club leader, emphasized how happy she was to have the opportunity to perform live again.“It was fun to perform in front of a live audience at our first ever Christmas Tree Lighting,” she said. Sofia Ranucci, senior and chorus leader, agreed, saying her favorite Christmas concert memory would have to be seeing all of the people in attendance enjoying the music and ambiance. The Christmas concert is a cherished tradition of the students and staff in our community, and everyone values this opportunity to spread Christmas cheer every year!
