On Sunday, Dec. 15, the Westfield High School Chorale will join the Maplewood Glee Club as special guests for its annual holiday concert.
This year’s theme is “Lights! Camera! Holiday!” – a collection of seasonal favorites from movies and TV. The concert will include songs from classics like White Christmas, Charlie Brown, and the Grinch to fan favorites from Love Actually and Toy Story. Says glee club president Kevin Weist, a Westfielder himself, “There’s even a song about holiday sweaters … The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.”
Sharing the stage with the glee club for the first time, the WHS Chorale will bring their polished brand of chamber singing to the program. The Chorale is a 22-person elite ensemble that has sung at Carnegie Hall, on TV, and next spring will sing in Faure’s Requiem at Alice Tully Hall. Also performing will be smaller combos The Doo Wop Preservation Society and The Unusual Suspects.
The family-friendly concert, which includes an audience sing-along, will take place at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 15 at St. Joseph’s Church, 767 Prospect St. in Maplewood.
