The Cypress Choir, on the crisp evening of December 15th, held a warm and festive show to capture the nostalgia and enchantment of the season. Directed by Hollie Jones and choreographed by Aimee Mauzey and Karina Alfajora. The show was more than just a concert, it was an invitation to share the magic in the seasons and connect everyone with familiar tunes from across the world.

Kicking off the musical spectacle was every choir’s rendition of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” The show demonstrated its versatility with seamless transitions between songs and groups. From the classic “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” sung by Voltage Unlimited to the more contemporary “Text Me Merry Christmas” by the Sparks, each performance showcase

In the midst of the musical journey, backstage moments provided insights into the dedication and camaraderie of the choir members.  Shelby Webb, a singer in Pink Thunder, said, “It went really well. Keeping the energy up was a bit difficult for [Pink Thunder].” She spoke out about how “Oh Santa” was exceptionally easy since everyone seemed to love it with its high energy. Webb also said “People kept almost falling during practices, we had to catch those who almost did. But thankfully no one fell during the actual show.”

Not even an appearance by the Grinch could ruin the holiday spirit in the CHS theatre.

Culminating in a crescendo of emotions, the grand finale featured an audience sing along, allowing the audience to participate not only as observers, but as part of the show. The impeccable performance drew thunderous applause, with the choir members’ collective talent and dedication shining through, creating a memorable and resonant conclusion to the night.

The Winter Choir Show was more than a mere concert; it was a celebration of harmony and talent. As the echoes of applause lingered in the air, the night was a testament to the enchanting melodies and collective brilliance of the singers.
