Choir celebrates with Christmas concert

The choir will host the annual Christmas concert in the chapel on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Dr. Adeline Bethany, the director, said, “It is typical of the holiday season and it gets people in the [holiday] mood.”

Many times people see it advertised in the newspaper and come from Philadelphia to enjoy the traditional songs of the Christmas season, Bethany said.

The choir consists of 25 members, mainly Cabrini students. It is also open to the community and this year there are four members of the community involved.

There are a few solos and, traditionally, a senior student sings “Oh Holy Night.”

Bethany is excited because the choir has brand new robes this year.

The choir usually has more people in it, but it is common for students to have Monday night classes, which makes it difficult to attend practice.

Choir can be taken for 1.5 credits. If taken twice, it will fulfill the three-credit aesthetics requirement. For those students already finished with their aesthetics obligation, it can be taken simply for fun.

Helen Morris is the senior this year who will be singing “Oh Holy Night.” This is her third year in the choir. She is very eager to sing her solo.

“This semester we’re doing some more challenging pieces, even some songs by Mozart,” Morris said.

In addition to Mozart, the choir will be performing “Dona Nobis Pacem,” “Oh Bambino” and some more traditional songs such as “Let it Snow,” “Winter Wonderland” and “Joy to the World.”
