NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The Seldin Performing Arts Center has been filled with seasonal music from St. Luke’s bands and choirs to celebrate the holiday season in New Canaan.

The evening of Wednesday, Dec. 10, was filled with horns, woodwinds, percussion, and a bit of storytelling during the Winter Band Concert. The fantastically talented musicians of the Band 6, Prep Band, Concert Band, and Jazz Band performed under the direction of Bob Leinbach and Peter Valera.

More than 120 students prepared for this concert over the past few months and their audience was not disappointed.

On the evenings of Dec. 17 and 18, the upper and middle school choirs performed timeless and culturally diverse songs of the holiday season and beyond.

Under the direction of St. Luke’s music chair, Dale Griffa and Katie Kaplan, the choirs and acappella groups filled the concert hall with beautiful melodies. Over 250 students performed throughout the two shows.
