On November 27, Poly’s Jazz Choir performed carols for the Long Beach Christmas tree lighting event held at the Terrace Plaza, also known as, the Long Beach Performing Arts Center.

The choir consisted of six boys and six girls: Caroline Wolfson, Christine Nguyen, Lauren Wynne, Aiyanna Johns, Caitlyn Song, Caleb Marsh, Dane Camacho, Jay Kumar, Justin Greenwood, Gabriel Vasquez, Jovanni Pham, and Angelo Vano.

They performed two popular holiday hits, “Jingle Bell Rock,” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”

Caleb Marsh, a sophomore, in the choir said it felt “festive,” and “rewarding to perform in front of a large audience.” Although the performance was about eight minutes, they were paid which goes straight to the Poly Choir program for the items and materials needed such as choir attire.

The impressive thing is that this is the second time the city has welcomed the Poly Choir to the Long Beach Christmas tree lighting because, they were in the exact same spot last year. Other than the spectacular carols sang by the choir, the place was fully decorated with Christmas lights and littered with children wanting to take a picture with Mr. Claus and Mrs. Claus.

Jazz and Poly’s other choirs also had a holiday performance December 6  in the Poly auditorium.
