The mood was festive at the Burkholder Community Lounge on Thursday afternoon, December 11, as everyone gathered together to enjoy a performance by the Westminster School’s talented Chamber Choir.
The beautifully-decorated room set the scene for a preconcert reception of champagne punch and hors d’oeuvres. Everyone commented that bruschetta spread and champagne dressed with cranberries were a delicious treat!
The Chamber Choir, accompanied by piano, performed a series of holiday songs for approximately 40 minutes. They delighted the McLean audience with their repertoire and contagious enthusiasm. The students passed out song sheets and invited the group to join them in a sing–a-long toward the end. Everyone happily chimed in to Christmas favorites like Jingle Bells and Silent Night.
The Westminster Chamber Choir is directed by David Chrzanowski, who is also the school’s chapel organist. It is comprised of high school students, grades 9-12, who have been selected through an audition process.
McLean was proud to host them as we ring in the season!
