Holiday Happenings in the Music Department


The holiday season is one of the busiest for the music department. There are many opportunities to see WMC’s finest musicians in action!


Upcoming Events: 

December 19th, 7pm: West Morris Central Winter Concert 

For the final concert of 2019, WMC’s music department will be putting on a winter concert. The first half of the concert will feature the Mixed Choir, Women’s Ensemble, Concert Choir, and the a cappella groups, Loreleis, Noteworthies, and Howlers. The second half will feature the Mixed Choir and a small orchestra performing several choruses and solos from Handel’s Messiah. This yearly tradition is not to be missed!

December 8th, 5pm: Zion Lutheran Church Tree Lighting

As part of Long Valley’s Holiday Happenings this year, Zion Lutheran Church had their tree lighting ceremony. The a cappella groups performed their songs in the church along with several other groups before the ceremony began outside.

December 6th, 10th, 11th, and 17th: Orchestra at ShopRite

Orchestra students from the two ensemble groups, a quartet and a quintet, play holiday music to entertain the shoppers. The groups take turns sending musicians to play, so it’s a different ensemble every time!
