Members of the GHS Vocal Department will spread their cheer and love for the season throughout the community, offering not only performances, but smiles and beautiful music to brighten the winter months. Geneva’s Image Show Choir (GI’s) consists of 25 incredibly talented performers. These singers and musicians warm the hearts of many in about 20 locations during the holiday season. They will perform many classic Christmas songs, like “Carol of the Bells,” “Holly Jolly Christmas” and “Let it Snow.”
One ensemble member, Christine Perko, really values the experience and when asked how she feels about the Christmas performances she said, “The most amazing part for me is being able to watch exactly how the vocalists pull in individual members of the audience and make connections with everyone present. The moment the first song starts, the whole energy of the room comes alive; people’s eyes light up, they sway to the beat, or even sing along to songs they know.”
The Concert Choir and Women’s Chorale will also be singing alongside the GI’s at the Holiday Choir Concert, to be held 7:30 p.m. Dec. 20. They will be performing popular holiday songs and will end with the traditional “White Christmas,” where the alumni are asked to join the choir on stage to sing as one collective group. Geneva Eagle Christmas ornaments will be on sale for $10 each before and after the performance, and the profits will be used to help fund the spring competition trip to Walt Disney World in Florida. Admission to this annual concert is free and open to the public.
Everyone here at Geneva High School wishes all of community, friends and neighbors a joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
