Dec. 15, 2016 – The spirit of Christmas was on display as the Trinity music ensembles presented our annual Christmas Concert and the Trinity 6th grade performed a “Miracle on Main Street” to a packed house at Grace Baptist Church.
The Trinity Symphony Orchestra, now 40 members strong, began the evening with traditional carols as well as a medley from “The Polar Express”. The Trinity Jazz Ensemble played “Jingle All the Way” and Sidney Wexler and Sam Alfsen sang Vince Guaraldi’s classic “Christmas Time is Here”.
The Crimson Chimes rang out “Rejoice, a Savior Comes”, followed by the Trinity Strings which played “Eine Kleine Nacht” by Mozart and Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”. The Crimson Bells played the traditional french carol “Pat-a-Pan”, the vocal ensemble sang “Carol of the Bells” and the Crimson Handbells performed “Grazioso”. There was also a beautiful display of our students fine art paintings and drawings from the year.
The second half of the show saw the entire grammar school join the cast of the Trinity 6th grade for “Miracle on Main Street”. The heartwarming musical followed a group of students who look forward to performing the traditional Christmas program in their town square only to have it called off by the mayor who prefers a less ‘controversial’ holiday celebration. The kids sing carols at various houses and implore the townspeople to persuade the mayor to reconsider. In the end, the students prove very convincing and the mayor not allows the Christmas celebration but has a personal change of heart as well.
It was a true celebration of the season and a joyous celebration of the birth of Christ.
It was truly a special night for all of our performers and all of our guests. Special thanks to the entire staff at Grace Baptist church for their support of the our Christmas Concert. Thanks to all the Trinity faculty, staff, parents and the Trinity Arts League who helped make the evening such a success.
Thanks to Melanie Klar, Lisa Hernacki and Andrew Richardson for their direction of our musical groups and to Tom Brown for his leadership of our Fine Arts Department. And finally, thanks to our musical director Jennifer Brown, for her dedication to our students and for leading them in the Christmas performance.
