The Westfield High School Choral Department invites the community to its free winter concert, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 20, at the Westfield High School auditorium.
The concert will feature both traditional and contemporary holiday pieces; many will be accompanied by the Westfield High School Symphony Orchestra. Monetary donations will be appreciated at this concert to benefit A Jersey Shore Christmas, an organization helping Hurricane Sandy victims by distributing toys and gift cards to displaced families, including those who are housed in the hotels in Wildwood that are usually closed during the off season.
The choir, under the direction of Mr. John Brzozowski, Director of Choral Music, consists of numerous students with various honors, among them the New Jersey Governor’s Award for vocal music, top place in NJMEA All-State Opera Festival, top place in All-State mixed chorus in Tenor I and Tenor II, acceptance and participation in NAfME All-National Honor Mixed Choir, and Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Awards for musical theater. Several students in the group have performed in CJMEA Region II Mixed and Women’s Chorus, and NJMEA All-State Mixed and Women’s Chorus.
This year the WHS Concert Choir will once again be holding its popular Christmas tree pick up fundraiser. Proceeds will go towards scholarships and future choir department trips. Pick up is scheduled for Saturday, January 5, 2013, and service is open to Westfield residents only at $10 per tree from the curb to the conservation center. Reservation can be made by January 2 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with last name, address, and a phone number.
