The Chamber Choir caroling at Lambert airport.

The Chamber Choir carols at St. Louis Lambert Airport. They will perform at Powell Symphony Hall on Dec. 16-18 with the St. Louis Symphony.

The Pattonville High School Chamber Choir will be joining the St. Louis Symphony as members of the Holiday Festival Chorus at Powell Symphony Hall on Dec. 16-18. This is the fifth time the Pirates will be participating in the concert.

The Chamber Choir will be performing many familiar Christmas classics such as “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and some other not-so-classic Christmas songs such as “South African Gloria.”

This year, the Chamber Choir was asked to perform the solo part in the song “Ave Maria.”

Chamber Choir will be performing the Choir A part as an “Angel Choir” from the balcony. Choir B will be sung from the other chorus members on the stage.

Junior Josh Royal will be performing with the symphony for the third year.

“I am more excited about it this year because of the Angel Choir part that Pattonville gets to perform,” Royal said. “I feel honored to have been chosen to do something like that.”

Another exciting part about the Symphony performance this year is that senior Jack McFarling and junior Aaron Garner were chosen to sing solos in the song “Ave Maria.” Choir director Ms. Melynda Lamb is especially excited that the solos are a capella, so it will be just the boys’ voices echoing through Powell Hall.

“Aaron and Jack will be singing in the prestigious Powell Hall all by themselves,” Lamb said. “The room will be filled with their beautiful voices, just as it has been for hundreds of famous singers. I am so thrilled with their accomplishment.”

The Chamber Choir will have only two rehearsals before the shows and performances will be:

  • Friday, December 16 – 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, December 17 – 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, December 18 – 2 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online.
