It was a chilly and festive First Friday on December 2nd when the Waynflete Upper School Chorus, together with Portland’s poet laureate, Gibson Fay-Leblanc, presented a performance of seasonal songs and poetry in the Joan B. Burns Garden at the Portland Museum of Art. This was the second year in a row the Chorus has participated in this event to celebrate the start of the holiday season with the lighting of the Museum’s beautiful, over-one-hundred-year-old copper beech tree. The Chorus sounded fantastic and the crowd was enthusiastic as they listened, sang along, and counted down to the lighting of the tree.

A huge thanks to the members of our Chorus and to Marcie Griswold, the PMA’s Public Programs Coordinator, for helping to make this event a joyous success!
