’Tis the season for caroling, candles, Santa, Sleighs and high spirits. Little Man Ice Cream kicks off the season with local DPS schools to bring musical cheer to the ’hood. Two Holiday Lights caroling events featuring local schools and the Denver Choir League will ring in the merry at the Little Man Ice Cream Factory, 4411 W. Colfax Ave. and at Little Man Ice Cream, 2620 16th St.
From 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, the Denver Choir League founded by Katy Lushman, the musical director of North High School, will perform at the Factory. The choir is filled with music educators and local community members. Their voices soar in perfect harmony. It’s a great way to belt out some carols without worrying.
From 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, the 8th annual Holiday Lights event at the Little Man Ice Cream Plaza, 2620 16th St., features North High School, Skinner and Edison musicians in a lively community singalong. These students brought the house down at a recent performance at North. This event is a perfect way to take pride in our students and teachers as school music programs continue to excel in Northwest Denver.
Ally Olsen, the music teacher at North, will kick off the night with a “Caroling Crawl.” Students from all schools performing will meet at North High School at 5 p.m. and carol through the Highlands to the Little Man Plaza. The event, affectionately known as “Pajama Christmas Carol and Hora-around-the-Menorah”, brings families together clad in pajamas, onesies and robes to carol, light Channukah candles, taste latkes and hot cocoa. PLUS the big guy and the misses will be there to take photos with the family. Join in the fun with some Ho Ho Ho-liday cheer!
