Hallelujah Chorus!

During the Festival of Trees, school and community singing groups performed throughout the day at the Atheneum's Aetna Theater.  While I was there, the Hall High School Concert Choir sang the Hallelujah Chorus.  It was an unusual choice to perform it with a small mixed choir, but it was beautiful.

A chorus of fresh young voices is a delight. What a joyful sound!!

I like the two shots juxtaposed...and the faces are so fun to look at. Some of them are really into it, and a few look like they're asleep!

Oh I bet is was. There is just something about a chorus singing that really calls out the holidays to me.

Wish I had been there, Jack. The Hallelujah Chorus brings back happy memories of when I sang it in school.

Nothing like Christmas music to put you in the season! Lovely.

They must have been thrilled - but nervous!

Methinks I would have enjoyed this very much!

And what a snappy looking group it is! Matching bow ties and cumberbunds all around! My husband performed the Messiah at that age and still remembers it with great fondness, a good reason for a group of any size to sing it. . .

Hallelujah. I love hearing that during the holidays.

Randy said...
