Choral program excels during This Winter Night concert

This winter night of January 19 was a delight to sit and listen.

That was the experience of the audience who watched—and listened—when the Bridgewater-Raritan High School Choir held its annual “This Winter Night” concert.

The Winter Choral Concert, which was performed in the high school auditorium, was a show that featured the skillful sounds from the Bridgewater-Raritan High School’s Choral Program’s Mixed Choir, Select Treble, A Capella Alliance, Lorelei and the Symphonic Choir

Dr. John Wilson, the high school’s Choral Director, was among the many in the auditorium who was delighted with the performance.

“It  was such a joy to celebrate the work of our wonderful choral students. I hope that they are as proud of their work as I am,” Dr. Wilson said.

 The performance also honored Dr. Laura Bassett, the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District’s Supervisor of Arts Education, who will be moving on from her role to become the Principal at the school district’s Eisenhower Intermediate School.

She will begin in her new position on February 1 when she will replace Joe Diskin, who will retire from that position after 23 years.

“ It was also very special to celebrate Laura Bassett’s move to Eisenhower Intermediate School, where she will soon serve as principal. She has given so much to our music department and to our students,” Dr. Wilson said.

He also praised the contributions that both he and the students received during the evening.

“'I'm also grateful to our Choir Parents’ Organization, who made sure the event ran smoothly.”

Dr. Bassett was in attendance and enjoyed this special evening.

“The BRHS Choral Concert was an exciting culmination of months of hard work in our high school choral program,” Dr. Bassett said. “Thank you to Dr. Wilson for leading this wonderful evening and congratulations to all of the student performers.”
