Annual Christmas Program Brings Christmas Spirit

Annual Christmas Program Brings Christmas Spirit

On Friday, December 16, the St. Sebastian's Community kicked off Christmas Break with a festive Christmas program, celebrating the season with song and scripture.

During the first part of the program, Fr. John Arens provided an opening prayer and students read scripture and the St. Sebastian's Schola, Mass Ensemble and Faculty Chorale performed several traditional Christmas pieces, including "Once in Royal David's City" and "Joy to the World." Highlights of the program include Music Ministry Director, Mr. Meyer Chambers' performance of "I Wonder as I Wander," and a wonderful faculty performance of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by Mrs. Kera Wiggin on vocals and Mr. Stefan Cressotti on guitar.

The second half of the program continued with performances by the Jazz Pop Chamber Ensemble Combo with special guest musicians from the Ursuline School Ensemble. Songs included "Santa Clause is Coming to Town," "Last Christmas," "Holiday Road," and a riveting performance of "Christmas Eve / Sarajevo."  The students and faculty joined in singing "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," always a crowd favorite.

Thank you to the Ursuline School performers and the students and faculty members who shared their musical gifts with our Community, including: Mr. Karl Grohmann, music teacher, Mr. Meyer Chambers, director of music ministry.
