Hello family and friends of Kimberly Choir!
As the holiday season approaches, I would like to invite you to our Holiday Choir Concert, which will be on Monday, December 11 at 7:00 pm. While ugly sweaters and carols are all jolly and grand, there’s a little more to this concert. The theme for our holiday concert this year, is Sing We All Noel!
There’s quite a bit on our minds this time of year: shopping, baking, wrapping, and decorating! Our stress levels are high when we have a multitude of things to do before the holidays. But this season doesn’t have to be only about all of those things. There’s something special about shopping and preparing our homes and our hearts for this season. There’s something to be said about dragging a little bit of snow in the house after you’ve been outside and having to scrape your car windows every morning. It’s the feeling you get this time of year that you don’t really get any other time of the year. (Or any other state in the country, for that matter!) And at least for me, this is the only time of year I get to see my entire family.
I have two cousins in the military. I have an uncle who is a professional violinist. I have an uncle who works as a head chef 10-12 hour days almost every day. Both sets of grandparents live at least 4 hours away. I don’t get to see them very often, and I think that’s what makes the holidays so special for me -- this is the only time I get to see them each year. When we’re together, all problems are cast aside, and we get to focus on just being together. Eating food, giving gifts, telling stories, and then saying goodbye for one more year.
So, you’re probably asking yourself what in the world this has to do with a high school choir concert?! This time of year I get to sing a whole lot - and not just at this upcoming concert. Each year,the KHS Chamber Choir gets to go out and carol numerous times around the community, and there’s no better feeling than that! Singing is something that I really like to do, and this season gives me a big opportunity to do that! So, please take a break from your shopping, baking, wrapping, and decorating, and come to our Holiday Choir Concert. Let the music of the season help you to remember all this is important about this season. Take my word for it when I say it’s going to be great! I hope to see you there!
