VPA Christmas Performance
VPA Christmas Performance
Thursday, December 12, 2019

Marion VPA had its 2nd annual Christmas Spectacular on Friday, December 6th featuring the VPA Allstar Choir and 1st-3rd grades performing the musical “Presents on Parade”.  The performed wowed an audience of over 700!

Students worked hard during rehearsals for 7 weeks prior to the performance.The VPA Allstar Choir performed several selections including “Christmas Jubilation” with featured soloist Richard Wallace; “A Christmas Greeting”; “Sing We Now of Christmas” with featured soloists: Joel Tapia, Keivon Robinson, Terrion Roysten; “Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town” with featured soloist Sana Kaid; and then ended with a lively rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”.  The choir was directed by Barry Bates and Tess Billings.  

The 1st-3rd grade performance of “Presents on Parade” featured a host of student actors accompanied by a large chorus. The interactive merriment ensured that all guests left being filled with the spirit of Christmas. The program would not have been a success without our amazing staff. These staff members gave countless hours to ensure that everything went perfectly: Barry Bates and Tess Billings - music direction, Whitney Hall - drama and stage direction, Brandy Allison- event coordination, and the rest of the Encore Team: Kim Watson, Courtney Shumock, and Natalie McNeely.  

A huge thank you and round of applause to our 1st-3rd grade teachers who helped ensure that this year’s program was VPA’s best performance yet!
