Washington, CT - The cold wintry winds did not chill Glenholme’s chorus and band as they harmonized a holiday performance in spectacular style. The school’s dining hall was standing room only on Thursday December 17 as family, students, and staff attended the hour-long occasion which included 15 holiday songs.

Holiday cheer resounded around campus as the 34 students harmonized the words of “The First Noel,” “Child of Kwanzaa,” “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “Boogie Woogie Holiday,” and more. It was a spectacular holiday choral concert with many memorable moments including special solo performances, spectacular ensembles, and the premier of the Glenholme Grizzlies Dance Team. The result of the students’ extraordinary effort was an astounded audience filled with smiles and amazing feelings of holiday cheer.
