Zoe: “My favorite holiday song would have to be ‘Carol Of the Bells’ because I like all the different parts. The dynamics are really cool. It’s this great Christmas carol.”
Eszter: “‘Angels We Have Heard On High’” because the Gloria part is really fun to sing especially with all the different parts going on.”

TT Christina Nini Nicolette Garthe

Christina: “‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey. I really like it because it’s been around for awhile. Everyone knows it and everyone can sing along to it together. It’s exciting and puts everyone in a good mood.”
Nicolette: “‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’ because it describes all the holiday events and things that come along with Christmas. The tune is just jolly and happy. It brings the Christmas spirit alive.”
