Canfield Village Middle School’s fifth- and sixth-grade choirs, under the direction of Stephanie Summers, paid tribute to the upcoming holidays with music and singing during a winter concert Dec. 3 in front of a packed house in the Canfield High School auditorium.

“I would like to welcome you all to the fifth- and sixth-grade winter concert. We will start the performance with the fifth-grade choir. They are a great bunch of kids and I have very much enjoyed working with them,” Summers said to the audience at the start of the show.

The fifth-grade choir opened the show with “Sing Out a Joyful Song” by Dave and Jean Perry and then performed “Thank You, Soldiers” by Michael and Angels Souders, which they also performed at the school’s Veterans Day assembly in November.

The choir continued with “Deedle Deedle Dai” (Hanukkah is the Reason Why) by Lois Brownsey and Marti Lunn-Lantz and closed their portion of the concert with “Feliz Navidad” (Merry Christmas to All) by Dave and Jean Perry.

Throughout the performance, fifth-graders Shaylea Plant, Mia Malvasi, Joey D’Apolito, Allison Stanko, Cade Roth and Ivy Martin contributed narrations. Courtney Larson accompanied the choir on piano.

The sixth-grade choir then took the stage for its performance, starting with “Christmas…In About Three Minutes” arranged by Mark Weston and followed that carol with “One Candle” by Andy Beck and Brian Fisher with soloists Ashley and Brianna Ventimiglia and Patrick Colonna.

The choir continued with “Minka” arranged by Jill Ann Jones with Isabella Audia on the sleigh bells. “Hanukkah Shalom” by Ruth G. Schram and Linda Marcus was performed next. To close the concert, the choir sang “Child of God,” a traditional spiritual arranged by Emily Crocker.

Seth Flower, Alex Okelberry, Mallory Vaclav, Alyssa Householder, Faith Slater and Jared Russell contributed narrations throughout the performance.

The sixth-grade choir was accompanied by Alison Morris on the piano.

“Thank you for coming to our winter concert. I would like to wish everyone a very, very happy holiday season,” Summers said at the conclusion of the evening.
