Celebrating the Gift of “Giving” and 12 Special Festivals

The Winter Concert Celebration was held on December 18 and 19. The theme for the concert was “Gratitude and Giving around the World: One World, One Dream, and One Family”. The performances were designed as a reflection on this theme in the form of songs, dance, theatre, and combinations.

After more than a month of dedicated practice, the students presented a wonderful winter concert. Here are the details of the various depictions. Let’s all enjoy it together.
