Music Surrounds

The Philadelphia School fills the weeks before Winter Break with musical performances by every single student in the school, be they participants in an all-school sing-along or performers in a winter concert.

Last Friday was the Preschool Sing-along - probably one of the cutest and heartfelt performances of the year!

On December 12 the Junior Unit/Middle School Concert featured 8th grade bands, the Junior Unit Chorus, the Sandra Dean String Ensemble, and the sixth grade. Music will range from “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen to "La Rejouissance” from The Royal Fireworks Music by George Frideric Handel to “Nkosi Sikeleli Afrika” arranged by Joseph Shabalala, Nick Page, and Donna Bostock.


On December 14, Encuentro time will be devoted to an all-school sing-along.

Finally, on December 18 - the day before Winter Break - we will be serenaded by the Primary Unit and the Third Grade. Their concert will feature the Primary and Junior Uint Choruses and the Junior String Ensemble. The audience will enjoy “La Musette” by Johann Sebastian Bach, “Tree Song” by Kenneth Medema and arranged by Robert Sterling, “Dansi Na Kuimba” – to highlight just a few.

And . . . the musical performances will continue in January, with a Kindergarten Sing-along Concert on January 29.
