more angels

winter concert at davis waldorf

Winter break for Davis Waldorf was heralded by a beautiful evening of seasonal songs, lively dancing, string ensembles, and concert band performances. Students of grades two through eight proudly gave their all in bringing holiday cheer to the DWS community.

My seventh grade students had been practicing a song and dance number that I had composed for the past three weeks. Drawing from their varied talents and strengths - two on percussion, a pianist, two guitarists, vocalists, and dancers (a special thanks to my daughter who choreographed their dance), the students came together to create a very special offering.

Here are the lyrics:

Winter light aglow

whisper of falling snow

Lonely star on high

A silent holy night

Holly and mistletoe

Wreaths on every door

Bells rign in the season

Apples and cinnamon

Friends and family

Are all the gifts I need

Never mind the tinsel

Or stockings on the mantle

In this winter holiday

I sing to heaven and pray

Climb down

Ye angels

Bring peace

Climb down

Ye angels

Bring peace

Climb down

Ye angels

Have a blessed holiday season!
