Lengel choirs spread holiday cheer

REHEARSE – The Tide Tones, an auditioned group of seventh and eighth grade vocalists, rehearse for their annual holiday concert. The concert was held on Sunday, December 8.

The DHHL holiday choir concert was a complete success! Some comments heard included, “It was a wonderful experience for everyone!” “Everyone did amazingly!” “Tremendous music selection!”

On Sunday, December 8th, the DHH Lengel choirs performed their annual Christmas concert in the auditorium at Pottsville Area High School. There were many fun and exciting songs. Some of the songs were “The Christmas Clock,” “Be Glad This Festive Day,” “O Christmas Tree,” and “The Holiday Singalong.” This year, the choirs changed a little bit. Fifth grade sang as usual, but this year the music teachers combined the sixth grade choir with the seventh and eighth grades. They called the new sixth, seventh, and eighth grade choir “Lengel Voices.”

This year the Tide Tones also sang, but this year was a little different. This year the Tide Tones performed a song called “Christmas Canon.” Now what’s so special about this you ask? Mrs. Kayla Kurtz asked an eighth grade student to play the flute for the song. Emma Seiger is an eighth grade student who plays the flute in the symphonic band. Seiger has practiced outside of school to prepare for her performance. Seiger spent her free time working on the song and spent time working with Mrs. Kurtz to perfect the song. Her solo went off without a hitch and sounded beautiful accompanying the Tide Tones.

The choir concert was a wonderful experience for both the singers and the audience, and the Christmas spirit filled many hearts this holiday season. The choirs will be back in the spring with another concert.
