At 7:00 PM on Wednesday, December 12, performers from Temple City High School entertained a large audience at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse with Christmas carols, dancing, and orchestral performances. The show, titled “One Magic Christmas,” included performances from the Temple City High School Concert Choir, Brighter Side, Choreo, Festival Orchestra, and Honors Orchestra.

The performers put on festive performances full of holiday cheer. Including classic songs such as “O Holy Night,” “Fa La La La La,” and “Sleigh Ride.” The show also included other acts such as a performance of a medley from “The King And I” and a “Led Zeppelin Medley.”

Also included was a humorous act by three TCHS teachers, performing the song “Christmas Don’t be Late” from the movie The Chipmunks.

A large audience of about 800 people attended the show. Overall, the show was a success and delighted the audience.

“I just like the whole program because everyone gets the spotlight,” said senior orchestra performer Florence Liu, “I think variety is very important, It’s a good mix.”

Viewers and performers commented on the enthusiasm and skill of the TCHS performing arts department.

“It was a really fun showcase of Temple City High School’s talents,” said Senior Kevin Lin, “I really enjoyed it, and it was great to see my peers perform. The Choreo performance was especially exciting!”

A raffle was also held at the show, with a prize of an annual pass to the Disneyland California Adventure Park. The producer of the show was Matt Beyers, and the orchestra was conducted by Bert Ferntheil.
