Congratulations singers and directors for 3 wonderfully distinct performances last night!

The Children's Choir looked amazing in their beautiful new vests! It was wonderful to hear these young voices come together for their 1st public performance. Well done choristers!

The Junior Concert Choir shook up the venue with their combination of high energy and deeply emotional repertoire. Congratulations to director Ms. Gallo on her 1st performance with this choir!

The evening ended with the award winning Senior Concert Choir. Their high quality sound resonated throughout the venue. The boys were "awesome" in Row, Boys, Row!

Thank you to all the JCC parents for the reception. It was great to socialize after the performance!
