It may be choral director Justin Miller's first year of preparing for the annual Candlelight Concerts at Staples High School, but it's the school's 70th year.
The holiday concerts will feature the Staples Chorus, Choir and Chorale, the Symphonic Orchestra and the combined Symphonic and Sophomore bands. The concerts will be held at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec.10, and at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, in the Staples auditorium.
Each student ensemble will perform individually. In closing, the singers and orchestra students will join together for the traditional processional "Sing We Noel" and a community sing-along of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus."
Tickets are free and can be picked up at the Welcome Desk at Staples High School until 3 p.m. weekdays. Call 203-341-1200 for ticket availability.
