The PHS concert band and choir will be putting together the annual Christmas concert on December 18 at 1:30 p.m. in the Uyesugi Auditorium. The concert will include a variety of traditional and modern Christmas music. 

The choir is composed of 47 students, 37 of which are in the junior high choir. 

“The song choices are not completely final and some are still up in the air but just to name a few the High School Choir will be doing an unexpected version of 12 days of Christmas and White Winter Hymnal by Pentatonix. The Junior High choir will be singing Carol of the Bells and Little Saint Nick,” said Choir Teacher Seth Eisenhower. 

The band will be joining the choir during the concert.

For those attending, it is highly advised to dress formally and be respectful to the performers by abstaining from having a camera flash or a cellular device ringer on, and to remove any crying children.

For many, this is their last Christmas concert with the Paoli Concert Band after performing together for as many as six years. 

“It feels a little surreal to say the least. The Christmas concert has always been a nice, fun thing to do after the stress of marching band is over. While it has never been what I look forward to most, it’s one of those small experiences that I’m going to miss doing with my band family every year. That’s why I’m going to savor every second of it one last time,” said senior AJ Lopez.
