  • Choir director Bruce Stevenson prepares the choir for their performance at the FISD Administration Building on Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017.

  • The first stop on the choir’s winter caroling field trip was Isbell Elementary School where the choir performed for students in the cafeteria.

  • Performing at the Frisco ISD administration Tuesday afternoon, the school’s varsity choir sang holiday songs for district administrators.

  • Throughout April and May, many seniors will be able to revisit their elementary schools or join in on a virtual meet-up with their school. For many, this is a chance to visit old teachers and end their time as a student in FISD on a high note.

  • During the visit to Isbell Elementary School, freshman Jai Dunlop leans over to talk to a younger student.

“It was pretty cool to go caroling for people,” junior Dionn Lacy said. “It’s the first time we’ve done that and I think everyone enjoyed it.”

Choir sang some songs like African Noel and Carol of the Bells from their winter concert, as well as some commonly known songs like Jingle Bells, Deck the Hall, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

“I think it’s really awesome for these elementary kids to see how they can continue choir and join choir when they get to high school,” Isbell Elementary Music teacher Sandra Horcher said. “The influence of the older kids and showing them that music is a really important thing to stay apart of.”

For some of the fourth grade students at Isbell, this was their first experience listening to a choir.

“It was very very pretty, and I liked it because they all had their own voices and it was very nice,” fourth grader Anna Knight said. “I like the voices and how they are all different and unique.”

After stopping for lunch, choir then headed over to the administration building where they performed their set for administration.

“I appreciated that y’all came over and took the time to show us your great work,” Director of Fine arts Richard Oldham said. “You sounded beautiful and the acoustics are terrific. You all just did a terrific job and we are thankful that you are here.”
