Elm Middle School ushered in the holiday season Tuesday, Dec. 4, with its annual Winter Concert — and what a show it was!
An enthusiastic audience packed the school gym to enjoy memorable performances by the Elm Choir and the Elm Concert Band.
Directed by Mr. Michael Popplewell, the choir began the evening with renditions of "Adoramus Te," "The Ghost Ship," "Dream a Dream," "Season's Greetings" and "One Candle." Ms. Rebecca Barbalace provided accompaniment on the piano.
"The Ghost Ship" featured solos by 8th-grade students Alanis Rivera and Tamaya Rosario.
Miss Rivera and Miss Rosario also performed solos on "One Candle" along with fellow 8th graders Emily Furgal, Aleena Moore, Jillian Schweinert and Harmony Velez.
The Elm Concert Band, directed by Mr. Kyle Rhoades, concluded the evening with four selections: "Winchester March," "Chant and Ceremony," "A Cartoon Christmas" and "Fiesta Espanola."
Thanks to everybody who turned out in support of our student musicians — and thanks to the Elmwood Park Band Boosters for all of their efforts throughout the year!
