Hallelujah! Candlelight Tickets Available Monday

Some things are timeless. Staples High School’s Candlelight Concert, for example, with its achingly beautiful “Sing We Noel” processional; its spectacular choral, orchestral and band music; its boisterous production number, and its show-stopping “Hallelujah Chorus” finale.

Some things are new — like using the internet to order of tickets.

This year — for only the 2nd year in a row — tickets are available online. Orders will be taken beginning 9 a.m. this Monday (November 20), at http://www.StaplesMusic.org. There is a 4-ticket maximum.

The 77th annual Candlelight Concert is set for Friday, December 15 (8 p.m.) and Saturday, December 16 (2 p.m. and 8 p.m.).

The concert is a gift to Westport, from the Staples music department. Tickets are free.

And priceless.

    Oh, the sweet memories of this concert, singing with both the A Capella Choir and the Girls’ Glee Club under the leadership of the most marvelous George Weigle ~ always get chills when listening to both “Sing We Noel” and the “Hallelujah Chorus”!

    If there is one Westport tradition that is never lost/forgotten, I vote for this one.

    Being fortunate to have A Cappella choir under the incomparable John Ohanian and Sophomore Girls Choir under Georg Weigle, I will be forever grateful. Even though we had only 3 years in the high school, the music department was central to so many of our lives and has provided truly lasting memories. I was able to attend the 75th Anniversary of the Candlelight Concert and was blown away by the vast talents obvious in both choral and instrumental. Awesome!
