The Award Winning Saint James Choir held their Annual Christmas Party
December 10, 2017.
The group provides a melody of song, the soloist also demonstrate the power of the Voice. Outstanding!
Jack, is getting Nuthin for Christmas! It made us all laugh but also think about questionable behavior and fear, Santa Claus may skip your house this year!
The talent of Run, Run Rudolph, without a doubt could easily have been a true STJ track star.
I later shared a meal with the Squid and family, after the show. We both got the grouper at the Portabello Cafe. Everyone has a cousin or two like this, I only have one, Billy Vail. It is not often we get to honor one of our own. It is the beauty of being a blogger.
These Three Kings, adorned with the Burger King Crowns, royally sang one of the most popular Christmas carols.
The music director is seen producing 'live" this year's rendition of Jingle Bells, with enthusiastic family members of the choir.
There was a call to action for recruits. You do not have to be a STJ Alumni, you do not even have to know how to sing. The music director said he can help! From what I could tell, you just need to have a desire to want to have fun and enjoy the comparability, but rest assure these men work hard to put on a professional show. The majority were graduates of the now closed Saint James Catholic High School in Chester but also included representatives from Chester High School, Sun Valley, Southern, West Catholic, and I know there are some I may have missed. They have performed in the Philadelphia at the St. Patrick's Parade and sang at the Cathedral Mass for several years in a row, also sang at several veteran's dedications and different parish functions. Not wishing to get into trouble (it's a Catholic thing for me) check their website. They also have some exciting events coming up. Including their toy drive December 13 and 14 and the James J. Hegarty Memorial Blood Drive December 18, 1:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the Doghouse.
One last piece of pride was announced by the Alumni Association President, Michael Ritz. Since its inception, the organization has raised 1.1 million dollars for scholarships.
All the music of the evening created a joyful and merry festive feeling but no other songs brought the crowd to their feet like the singing of the Alma Mater, the Saint James Bulldogs fight song.

To make the evening official, Santa Clause came to town, putting this establishment on the nice list.
