Grauer Students Sharing Holiday Cheer: Holiday Caroling
Just before Winter Break, Performing Arts teachers Isaac Langen, Tom Hopper, and Courtney Conway took a group of more than 30 Grauer students from all grades to visit the school’s neighbor, Somerford Place of Encinitas, on December 19. The students, along with Erin Langen, Shelley Boniwell, and Grauer alum Chase Miller, sang festive holiday songs to the seniors at Somerford, bringing happy smiles to their faces and brightening their holiday. Isaac, Tom, and Dr. Stuart Grauer accompanied each song with their guitars, and Francesca M. '20 and Courtney Conway gave special solo performances of classic holiday songs. Thanks to Isaac and the Grauer Music Department for continuing this special annual tradition of holiday caroling for the 16th year!
