NEW YORK —A number of Unionville High School music students — and teachers — will be performing as part of a special holiday concert Thursday evening at the legendary Manhattan venue Carnegie Hall, joined by a mix of talented students and adults from across the eastern U.S.
The orchestra will perform a concert with composer Tim Janis as part of the program: Tim Janis: An American Christmas Carol. Part of the concert will feature the orchestra playing original Janis compositions. The other part will have the orchestra playing with a 200-member youth choir made up of choirs up and down the East Coast. The music will be a mix of both secular and holiday pieces, mostly originals written by the composer.
Unionville will be well represented in the concert. Orchestra Director Janene Bostwick — who lives in Pocopson — will be playing violin along with six top orchestra students: Amanda, Chris, and Andrew Chou, Hannah Nam, Eddie Pyun, and Natalie Slezak. Band Director Scott Litzenberg will be playing timpani.
Several guest artists will be singing in the concert, including pop singer Chandler Lutz, opera singer Donald Braswell, and recent America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho, Jim Cole, Sarah Darling, Wendy McPike, Emily Bear, Eli Mattson, Lynn Witty, and Hollie Steel.
Tickets for the main concert in New York City are available through the Carnegie Hall website.
