As Highland Park High School students return to campus this week, the members of Park Version have a right to be more tired than their peers. The show choir had a full schedule in December.
The Christmas season kicked off Dec. 2, when Park Version — and the Lads and Lassies — performed with Rudy Gatlin at the Eisemann Center in Richardson. Three days later, both choirs braved the icy temperatures to sing at Highland Park’s annual lighting of the pecan tree on Armstrong Parkway.
Park Version performed twice at NorthPark Center on Dec. 13, a day after the Holiday Concert at the high school. The kids were booked for private parties on Dec. 10, 11, 13, and 19, plus a wedding at Royal Oaks Country Club on Dec. 21. Park Version also caroled at the FBI’s downtown office on Dec. 16 and at Lakewood Country Club on Dec. 14.
The Highland Park High School choirs, under the direction of Natalie Walker, will travel to Orlando this month to perform at Disney World. The spring choir concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. on March 5 in the HPHS auditorium.
