Choral Notes

Langley Choir Sings Hollywood

On Thursday, June 1st and Friday, June 2nd at 7:00 PM, Langley’s Choir presents: Lights! Camera! Saxons “Sing!” Hollywood featuring songs from the magic of movies. From Les Mis to the great Oz, from Footloose to Toy Story 2…our amazing choir sings musical medleys that will have you tapping your toes and dancing in your seats. Step into Langley’s auditorium to be transported to the foothills of Hollywood. Hear movie music that has captured our collective hearts throughout the decades. The Music of MGM, Into the Woods, Tangled, and Trolls, and many more, will entertain and delight the entire family.

Our choral students are guaranteed to deliver an award winning performance! Having just returned from Spring competition in the WorldStrides OnStage Music Festival in Hollywood, CA, the talented group swept all the top honors. All four of Langley’s choirs received Gold Medal ratings, and the Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, and Madrigals each won individual First Place Trophies in their categories. Together, these choirs won the “best-in-show” Adjudicator’s Trophy, with The Madrigals awarded the Most Outstanding Choral Group Trophy for achieving the highest score of any choir in the Festival. These remarkable singers secured the Choral Sweepstakes Trophy for having the highest score for any two choirs from one school. Two Langley seniors who began singing in Langley’s choirs as freshmen, Jamie Goodson and Teddy Herzfeld, were recognized with Ovation Awards for their outstanding solos.

Under the expert leadership of Dr. Mac Lambert, Langley’s choral director, the school’s award-winning choir program has become well known in Virginia, across the United States, and even internationally where they have performed in France at the famous Notre Dame Cathedral, historic Chartres Cathedral, and at Greniers a Sel, a 17th century structure converted into an enchanting performance venue in Honfleur, a small seaside town in the Normandy region.

See the spring show, June 1st and 2nd at 7:00 PM, in Langley’s auditorium. Both shows are open to the public. Lights, Cameras, Saxons “Sing!” Hollywood…you can never get enough!
