Christmas blizzard

imageThe joy of singing and the spirit of Christmas traditions were themes of Chesapeake Academy’s “Holiday Program of Lessons and Carols,” held last Friday to an appreciative audience of parents, grandparents and friends in the community.

Directed by music teacher Beth Somers, the morning program began with a traditional Christmas song, “The Friendly Beasts,” by early childhood students dressed as donkeys, cows and sheep, and continued with a mix of spiritual and spirited holiday songs and student readings representing various cultures and celebrations around the world. Lower and middle school students joined in voice to perform “A Celtic Christmas,” “Light Up the Tree,” “Venite Adoremus,” “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow,” “African Alleluia,” and “Happy New Year.”

The program concluded with a happy, boisterous rendition of “No School Tomorrow If It Snows!” that included an indoor mini white blizzard.
