Singing for Lake Zurich's Tree Lighting Ceremony


The Village Singers of Lake Zurich performed this afternoon for Lake Zurich's 25th annual tree lighting ceremony, singing five of the songs we'll be presenting at our concerts next weekend.  Our director, Sara, is in Italy for two weeks singing at an opera competition, so our assistant director, Earl, led us tonight, with 20 of our 35 members able to join us...




As you can see in the photo of the audience below, there was a good turnout for the event, with lots of kids anxious for Santa to arrive on the fire truck...



Then after a few words from Lake Zurich Village President, Suzanne Branding, she introduced Santa and together they lit the Christmas tree...



...and then everyone went inside to enjoy cookies and hot chocolate (donated by CostCo) and to allow the children to visit with Santa.  The events were sponsored by the Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce and the Village of Lake Zurich.
