Christmas Concert and Carol Service

Christmas Concert and Carol Service

Holcombe Grammar School’s annual Christmas Carol Concert was held Tuesday 10th December at St Stephen’s Church, Chatham.

Parents, carers, students and staff were invited to watch festive performances by Holcombe students, led by Mr Zwanzig, Head of Music. They were also able to join in with the festivities by joining the HGS Year 7 Choir in singing classic Christmas carols. The Choir, made up of volunteers from Year 7, brought smiles to faces with their upbeat performance of ‘Go Tell it on the Mountain.’ Energetic performances were given throughout the concert by the Holcombe Jazz Band and Brass Band and the audience were treated to a powerful performance of ‘I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas’ by Jack Douglas, Year 11. Leo Willard, Anthony Osalusi, Sylvester Sunkwa-Mills and Matthew Johnson gave confident readings of bible verses between the music. A big well done and thank you to all performers. We would like to thank Mr Zwanzig for organising the evening, which brought the community together and filled us with festive cheer. We would also like to thank the Holcombe Association for providing refreshments, and Mr Gardner, our Chief Executive Officer, for his words and best wishes at the close of the evening.
