Choir, guitar, orchestra and band are joining together to perform for the annual winter concert on Dec. 19 in the theater. Students in performing arts electives will create a full orchestra experience, and band and orchestra will provide background music for choir.

“I’m really excited for the [songs] that are combined, because we won’t really get to hear those until the last minute, like the week of the concert when we rehearse together with the orchestra and both of the choirs put together,” visual and performing arts teacher Adrian Rangel-Sanchez said.

Choir will perform popular songs listened to around the holiday season, such as “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Jingle Bells,” “Carol of the Bells,” “White Christmas,” and “Deck the Halls.” Full orchestra will also be performing to some of these songs.

Choir will also be performing a Venezuelan piece and a Catalonian folk song called “Fum, Fum, Fum.”

“I’m really excited to sing with concert chorale because now there’s Portola singers and concert chorale, but we are combining for some songs,” sophomore Raksha Rajeshmohan said. “I’m really excited for those because the sound is gonna be so full.”

Tickets are currently on sale for $5 if buying from a performer and $10 at the door right before the concert.

“It’s gonna be very different from last year because last year we just did three songs. So this year it is almost all choir through the whole concert,” Rangel-Sanchez said.
