Christmas classics and more at the House of Music Christmas Recital

The Christmas recital was held at the Alliance Church on Dec. 9

The House of Music’s annual Christmas Recital was held at the Alliance Church over the weekend. Students performed holiday classics as well as some modern pop songs.

Voice, piano, violin and guitar were all heard over the course of the recital which was split into three concerts on Dec. 9.

Jingle Bells, Carol of the Bells, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and many more were performed over the day.

A popular choice by students of the non-holiday variety was songs originally by the pop artist Lorde.

Students who performed in the concert series on Dec. 9 include, Kylee Tisdale, Gracie Urbinsky, Zayna Rogers, Kamryn Girard among many others.

The first session of the three-part concert included many voice performances as well as groups. The second session, on the other hand, showcased the talents of more musicians – primarily piano players.

The third session held a healthy mix of musicians and vocalists.

This year, students clamoured to perform in the early session, which began at 10 a.m. This is due largely to conflicts of interests later in the day.

Megan Epp, owner and instructor of the House of Music, said she was proud of the students.

“It is great to see how far they have come since the beginning of the year,” Epp said.

The students have another week or so of classes, before they start up again in the new year for another session of learning.
