Those who were in attendance for the annual PMA Christmas Concert were treated to a brilliant performance. Under the guidance of music extraordinaire, Maria Leticia Gonzalez Lozada, 90 choir students dazzled the crowd with songs of the season.
Students in grades one, two and three are part of the Junior Choir who sang “Away in the Manger,” “We Three Kings” and some popular classics such as “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” The young singers added their own personal dance movies along with choreographed moves that kept everyone smiling.
The Senior Choir made up of seasoned third through eighth graders was charming as well. The senior singers were full of spirit with “Jingle Bell Rock” and a crowd pleaser, “Bright Star Shining.” The audience joined in with clapping and singing.
Many students performed solos along with a grand finale of both choirs on stage for a beautiful rendition of “Holy Night” complete with Mary, Joseph and a baby Jesus. Several band members, along with a pianist, violinists and percussionists, completed the performance. The Senior Choir has been invited to Carnegie Hall in New York this June.
