South Plainfield, NJ
On December 21, 2016, the HSA advanced chime and vocal choirs brought Christmas cheer to the South Plainfield Senior Center. The choir sang traditional Christmas carols such as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire,” “Walking in a Winter Wonderland,” “Silent Night,” and much more. The 8th Grade Advanced Chime Group rung “Carol of the Bells” with student Joseph Paglia as the conductor. The Tuesday group rung “Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer” and “Trepak” from The Nutcracker, while the Thursday group rung “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and “Ding Dong Merrily on High.” Not only did they sing of snow and everyone’s favorite big man in red, but they helped the seniors keep the Christ in Christmas. The children enjoyed their time with the seniors, and are excited to return again next year!
