Getting in the Christmas Spirit

Getting in the Christmas Spirit

The sweet sounds of Christmas filled the air in Ursuline’s Tully Family Auditorium on the evening of Tuesday, December 19, as Performing Arts students from grades 6-12 took the stage for the highly anticipated 2023 Christmas Concert.



Talented musicians and vocalists put attendees in the Christmas spirit with a moving repertoire of classics and carols. Family, friends, faculty, staff, and alumnae enjoyed traditional and lesser-known musical numbers. 


"The Christmas concert is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate as a community and let our talented students shine," says Ms. Theresa Napoli, principal. "I am grateful for the dedication of our musicians, vocalists, and teachers who make this beautiful Christmas tradition come alive each year." 

The program included performances by students across a broad range of courses. Featured soloists included Amelia Greenhut '30, Laura Sanchez '28, Ava Maiese '28, Chloe Stella '28, Colleen Collins '30, Antonietta Cuono '30, Elena Richards '25, and Margo Rockefeller '26. American Sign Language was provided by Amelia Greenhut '30 and Chloe Stineman '28.

The Middle School Choir is instructed by Performing Arts department chair Mrs. Rosemary Clarizio '89. Music teacher Ms. Kelly Gentry instructs the High School Winds, High School Strings, and Advanced Orchestra. The Concert Choir and Chamber Choir are instructed by Mr. Sylvain Falipou-Karkari. Mr. Brent C. Mauldin served as accompanist for the evening.


All musicians joined together to close out the evening with a beautiful performance of Handel’s 'Hallelujah Chorus.' “Thank you for a beautiful evening,” said Dr. Colleen Melnyk, president, “and Merry Christmas to all!”
