Chamber choir sells Carol Grams

December 17, 2008 — by Sophia Cooper and Tim Rollinson

Classes last week were interrupted with a bit of holiday cheer as the SHS Chamber Singers sold their annual Carol Grams to raise money.

The tradition to sing holiday grams around school also financially benefits the Chamber Singers.

“We do it to raise money for our music accounts since [the choir] goes on a lot of trips. The Chamber Choir is the choir that travels the most,” said choir member senior Sarah Baldwin.

The grams were delivered during each period on Tuesday, Dec. 12. The song choices were: Hark the Herald Angel Sing, Angels We Have Heard on High, Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Silent Night, Joy to the World, Deck the Halls, Carol of the Bells (Jazz Version), Carol of the Bells (Regular Version), Sleigh Ride and Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

“We go through this long stretch of oh-my-god-I’m-stressed time and then the holiday season comes and it’s a time to spend with family friends. The Holiday Grams set the state for this. It lightens our hearts,” said assistant principal Karen Hyde.

The grams were sold for $2 each or $3 for two or $8 for five.
