On Thursday, December 13, 2012, the Salem Jr. High School choir department put on an amazing performance. They had worked for two months on preparing their songs for this performance. Each choir group put on three songs, with two combined advanced group songs, and one combined with everyone. The Chorus 1 group did the songs "Winter Wonderland", "Pat-a-Pan", and an "African Angel Carol." Concert Choir put on the songs "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "It's beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas," and "Believe" from The Polar Express. Women's Chorus did the songs "Sleigh Ride," "Mary Did You Know?" and "All I Want for Christmas is You." The last single group to preform was Chamber Singers singing "I Saw Three Ships," "Carol of Joy," and "It's Christmas!" The Advanced Choir songs were "Carol of the Bells" and "Grandmas Killer Fruitcake." (No offense to grandmas who make fruitcake.) The song that all the choirs sang was "The First Noel." It was beautiful; everyone loved it. It was an amazing performance with a spectacular ending.
