The St. Louis High School and middle school choirs performed in downtown St. Louis Thursday, Dec. 6, during the Christmas parade. The intention of this little concert was to expose the St. Louis community to the fairly new high school and middle school choirs and to spread some extra Christmas cheer.

According to Miss Livingston, the choir director, “I thought the choir did a great job. I appreciated the invitation to perform at the Christmas parade. I love when our program can give back to the community.”

This group started off their preparations right after school at the middle school by hosting a casual party for members of the choir. Official practice time was 5 p.m. at the same location, after which the choirs made their way downtown to perform in front of the Office of Human Services. The group began singing at around 5:45 p.m. and continued after the parade ended. The songs that were performed were Christmas carols, some of which included: Silent Night, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Angels We Have Heard on High, and The Christmas Song. There were 13 songs in total.

“The middle and high school choirs did such an amazing job together!” Jade Drayton, a member of the SLHS choir, commented. “There was a real sense of community with people standing in the cold to hear our songs. I personally loved hearing Hark the Herald Angels sing. There was such a beautiful blending of voices.”

The choir’s next performance is Dec. 20, at the high school cafeteria for their annual winter concert.
