Bringing in the Christmas season, Vanguard’s concert choir, women’s choir, concert orchestra and jazz band performed for the annual holiday celebration. The concert was staged at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts on December 2 and at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on December 5. Both venues gleamed with Christmas décor.
As they say in the movie Elf, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” With instruments and voices singing, Vanguard’s choirs, orchestra and jazz band decked the halls of both venues with Christmas cheer. Students, professors, staff, families and people from around the community gathered for the concerts.
At the Segerstrom performance, each note rang through the giant hall as the singers harmonized and the instruments played. After an opening song, the performers and attendees stood and sang traditional carols together. From there, the choirs, orchestra and jazz band took turns performing separately and together.
