LFAS Choir Night

The annual LFAS Choir Night and Project Kenya Sister Schools auction held at the Chandos Patterson Theatre at Pacific Academy on Friday December 7th, was another great success.

The night began with the Project Kenya Silent Auction, the biggest fundraiser of the year. There were many handmade items from Kenya that were very popular among the audience.

The show began with elementary students who entertained the audience with their festive outfits and  renditions of christmas songs such as, Blitzen’s Boogie (directed by Mrs. Dunja McCrae), Jingle Bell Rock (directed by Mrs. Donna Cieszecki), and Keep Christmas With You  (directed by Mrs. Robyn Lorenson).

The middle school, 6/7 Choir, directed by Mr Jim Sparks sang other famous christmas carols such as Deck the Halls  and joined with the Junior Choir (Grades 8/9) to sing  Hark the Harold Angels Sing and Nkosi, a South African Anthem.

The Senior Choir, directed by Jim Sparks also wowed the audience with songs,  Angels We Have Heard on High, O Holy Night, where solos were performed by Mikayla Stradiotto and Juliana Loughlin.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel which was sung on the balcony looking down onto the audience really inspired the audience.

Chamber Choir also sang a touching tribute song called For the Fallen in memory of Hellen Kariuki, a young kenyan girl who had been supported by Project Kenya Sister schools, but recently passed away in a car accident.

The night ended with a few more songs such as Jamboa Kenya Anthem, and Silent Night, which was accompanied by footage from Kenya compiled by volunteers from the summer 2012 trip.

The choirs would like to give a special thanks to Cindy Goddard and Alice Davies for accompanying as well as the wonderful office staff, Cheryl Davies and Samantha Taylor.

The night was a great success for the Langley Fine Arts choirs and Project Kenya Sister Schools.
