Holiday concert features variety of tunes

The middle of December is the season for Christmas concerts, and Thursday night the Bothwell Middle School Mixed Chorus held its holiday celebration concert.

The chorus sang traditional songs such as “Carol of the Bells” and a duet of “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth”, and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”.  They also mixed in foreign language songs, “Gaudeamus Hodie” in Spanish, and new arrangements “Let it Be Christmas” and “Jingle Bells (Sort Of!)”.

The program was directed by Marcia Nora Paquette and featured students in sixth through eighth grade.
