The bells will be ringing.
Yes, they will. And the voices will be singing favorite Christmas and holiday tunes Tuesday, Dec. 13 as the Davie High choral department presents its annual Christmas concert at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium.
It will be the first year the school has and handbell choir performing. Those students are not part of a class, but volunteered and are doing a wonderful job with limited practice, said Brittany Darst, chorus teacher.
“They are all doing very well,” she said of the handbell choir and the three choral choirs that will perform Tuesday – the Beginning Concert Choir, the Cantare, and the Vocal Ensemble.
She is encouraged by the community support (a $1,000 anonymous donor and another who provided $4,000 to help pay for a new piano. Sponsorships of shows and the class are welcome, Darst said. “We’re thankful for all of our donations.”
The show will feature performances including more than 50 students, an encouraging sign as more students continue to take the chorus class. Admission is $7 in advance and $10 at the door.
Each group will perform individual songs and a medley for the show expected to last about an hour. Expect to hear songs from the movie “Frozen,” as well as “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Where Are You Christmas?” and more.
