The Philadelphia School celebrates the winter season each year with a showcase of the music our children have been working on since September.
The celebration began on December 12 with a Preschool and Kindergarten Sing, conducted by music teacher Chris Gignac.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, December 16 and 17, it was time to hear the Primary Unit, 3rd grade, and Junior Unit student choirs, as well as various vocal and instrumental ensembles, including the Junior and Sandra Dean String ensembles, the Middle School Mixed Choir, and the Measure for Measure a cappella group. If you listened carefully, you could make connections to the all-school Cosmos theme or to various unit themes!
We are so grateful to and inspired by our music teachers - Shannon Coulter, choir director; Aaron Picht, string ensemble conductor; Chris Gignac, accompanist and preschool/kindergarten music teacher; and Ashley Opalka, co-director of Measure for Measure.
