The morning's First Grade Pageant featured our young boys re-enacting the Nativity through dialogue and song. They sang each classic carol, including the Spanish Pastores y Reyes, with feeling and confidence, and concluded with a rousing Joy to the World.
The evening brought us to St. Thomas More for the Advent Service of Lessons and Carols, beginning with a Recorder Consort, directed by Susan Iadone and featuring several of our alumni recorder players. During Lessons and Carols, scripture readings and carols beautifully rendered by Phyllis Clark's fifth and sixth grade chamber singers, filled the church with warmth and meaning.
These are such meaningful ways to celebrate our community and what we most value during this festive time of year.
As always, gratitude to Music Chair Jeff Moore, Choral Director Phyllis Clark, Religion Chair Jim Barbieri, and Recorder Teacher Susan Iadone for bringing us this meaningful event.
