Prep musicians add sparkle to Festival of Christmas Music and Reading
Laidlaw Hall was filled with the joyous sounds of holiday music as the Prep Concert Band, the wind ensemble and the Prep school choirs performed in UCC’s annual Festival of Christmas Music and Readings on Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017.
Parents, students and friends came together in song to celebrate the upcoming holiday season. Our musicians and singers were phenomenal, with an impressive vocal solo performance by Form 7 student Andrew Ma in the processional carol, “Once in Royal David’s City.” Friends and families were also treated to moving readings by Prep boys Jack Guilfoyle and Hudson Vandermeer, and Upper School students Noah Verhoeff and Josh Neufeldt.
Thank you to Kathryn Edmondson, Tony Gomes, Paul McGarr and Daniel Webb for organizing this lovely afternoon. Thank you to all our Prep Primary and Senior Choir boys’ beautiful carols. And a special thank you goes to Paul McGarr and the talented boys in the Prep concert band for welcoming guests to the Upper School with a selection of Christmas carols, a terrific prelude to the day’s main event.
