Chorus director Jane Woods writes: The school's full chorus of 125 students sang its fall concert repertoire in the three-story rotunda of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center just before Christmas. The concert featured a Phantom of the Opera medley and songs of the winter season -- Let it Snow, Winter Wonderland, Jingle Bells, and Sleigh Ride. The performance has become an annual tradition. Grades 9 through 12 took part, with seniors playing bells and percussion.

HHS's Footnotes sang at the Bugbee Senior Center for the 18th straight year (!!), offering a Gershwin medley with choreography (big band songs are a favorite) and winter season songs. Singers also mingled with the folks at their tables and encouraged them to sing along.

The Footnotes then performed at the annual holiday party for Residential Life employees at Dartmouth, the fifth time they've appeared. The employees were kind enough to contribute toward the group's upcoming trip to Joigny, France. Footnotes alumnus Josiah Proietti joined the group in singing.
