Christmas Program 2009

What used to be called Christmas Cantata, is now simply called Christmas Program at Renz's school. It surprised me initially since when my three older daughters studied there, it was always called Christmas Cantata.

See Renz's Christmas Cantata in 2007 and 2006.


Why it's not a Christmas Cantata

A cantata is defined as "a musical composition for voices and orchestra based on a religious text". I've watched the kids' Christmas numbers in school for many years. My only conclusion is that in recent years, most if not all of the numbers are DANCED and not SANG.



Anyway, in this year's Christmas Program, Renz played an angel in their class. The class sang "Silent Night" and "Jingle Bells". That's him at the left in the above photo.

The angel "wings" you see aren't really Renz's. They're the wings of another angel behind him. Renz's wings are actually smaller and inadvertently hid from view. :)
