WELLSBORO—The Wellsboro Area High School Holiday Chorus Concert, directed by Mrs. Judy Smithgall, is this Tuesday, Dec 6, at 7 p.m. at the Wellsboro High School Auditorium on Nichols Street. The concert is free and open to the public.

Ninth through twelfth graders in the Dickens Choir, Women's Ensemble, Men's Ensemble and the full chorus will sing a variety of traditional, winter, Christmas, and Hanukkah selections.

The 31 select members of the Dickens Choir, an a cappella group, will perform "White Winter Hymnal," "Silent Night" and "Fum, Fum, Fum.

The 29-member Women's Ensemble is an auditioned group. They will sing "Beautiful Snow," "Monotone Angel," and "My Favorite Things."
The 19-member Men's Ensemble, a non-auditioned group, will sing "Our Gift for You," Carry On Wayward Son," "The Impossible Dream" and "Do You Hear What I Hear."

"All songs being performed by these two ensembles were chosen by the students, with senior votes counting double," Smithgall said. 

The full chorus, which has 228 singers and six accompanists, will conclude the concert. Among the songs they will perform are "We are Lights"; "Welcome, Christmas" from Dr. Seuss’ "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"; an original song from the TV show Glee, "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" with twelfth grader Abby Cooper on drums; "Slow Dancing in the Snow," "All on a Cold Winter’s Night" with tenth grader Johanna Vogt on violin and "Cantar." The piano accompanists are: ninth grader Cathryn Brought; tenth graders, Ariana Carleton and Paige Hagy; and eleventh graders, Maggie Brennan, Jillian Graver and Taylor Mengee.

Chorus is an elective class. The students rehearse every other day in smaller classes of 31 to 75. The first time all of the students will rehearse together for this concert is Monday, Dec. 5. "The most difficult part of rehearsing on stage is trying to fit over 200 students on the risers, keeping them in their seven vocal parts, and still be able to see every face," Smithgall added.
