December 2007 Lyrics Sheet

Jingle Bell Rock -- MEMORIZED______

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell, That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell rock.
Christmas Time Is Here-- MEMORIZED______
Christmas time is here, happiness and cheer,
fun for all that children call
their favorite time of year.

Snowflakes in the air, carols everywhere,
olden times and ancient rhymes
and love and dreams to share.
Sleigh bells in the air; beauty every where;
yuletide by the fireside
and joyful memories there

Christmas time is here; we'll be drawing near;
oh that we could always see
such spirit through the year,

In The Window -- MEMORIZED______
In the window, where you can see the glow
From my menorah, a newly fallen snow
I will set you ____ little candle(s)
On this the ___/last night of Chanukah*

Ocho Kandelikas

3. SOLO Los pastelikos vo komer kon almendrinkas i la myel (chorus echoes


Oh! Una kandelika, dos, tres, quatro, cintchu, sej, siete…Ocho candelas para mi!


Lift Every Voice and Sing-- MEMORIZED______
Lift every voice and sing, till earth and Heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise, high as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.

Pablo the Reindeer-- (click for a recording) MEMORIZED______
When Santa goes to Mexico he takes a reindeer called Pablo.
Pablo can sing and dance and sway, he leads the reindeer all the way.
Santa can’t speak the Espanol so he depends on old Pablo.
All the muchachos love him so, Pablo the reindeer from Mexico.

Without him Santa would not know where he was going

Without him he would not know if it was snowing!

(south of the border?)
Pablo can do the cha-cha-cha, he makes the children laugh, Ha! Ha!
All the muchachas love him so! Pablo the reindeer from Mexico.

Repeat chorus except
All the muchachos shout OLE! Pablo please hurry back some day!

Ode to Peace -- MEMORIZED______
PART 1 Joy-ful, joy-ful lift your voi-ces all cre-a-tion ev’-ry-where!
Hearts and hands ‘cross seas and land come join us in our fer-vent prayer
Ev’-ry land and ev’-ry na-tion strong and might-y, meek and mild He-
--lp to build a world of peace for ev’-ry wo-man, man, and child!

PART 2 We sing proud-ly in un-i-ty, one heart, one voice, one mind
We’re all shar-ing a com-mon dream of peace and love for hu-man-kind
Ev’-ry na-tion all cre-a-tion come share the dream we’re dream-ing of
And side by side cross o-ceans wide we’ll build a world of peace and love!

Jennifer Higdon Composer Project Photos

During January and February students in Ms. Domningo and Ms. Turgeon's Music and Chorus classes had the opportunity to do a research project on a composer from the ASO's Young People's Concert. Almost 30 students chose to focus on the life and work of Atlanta native Jennifer Higdon. I got to meet Ms. Higdon while she was in town in early March to hear the ASO and Chorus perform and record her work "The Singing Rooms". Ms. Higdon was delighted and honored to hear that so many students were interested in her work. She asked me to tell you hi and she sends her warmest regards. Great work, kids! Now go out and learn about MORE living composers! -Ms. Turgeon
