This year’s Winter Choral Concert at the Selkirk Comp had a special guest as Santa Claus himself made an appearance on stage.
Santa Claus took part in the performance of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. The Jolly Old Elf decked the theatre at the end of the performance when he showed his athletic ability by doing the splits.
The annual event hosted by the Royals Performing Arts features performances by four distinct performing groups and they include, purplexity, chamber choir, junior vocal jazz and Sr. choir.
Purplexity is a senior auditioned ensemble and features Grade 11 and 12 students, who rehearse together every second morning during the academic year.
Chamber choir is also an auditioned group of girls in Grades 11 and 12. This particular group has had a number of performances since September, such as the Division Choral Concert.
Junior vocal jazz is a group of five dedicated students, who rehearse together each morning during the first semester.
Seventy-six high school students make up the largest senior choir in school history. This group of singers meet three times per week throughout the school year.
