Homeschool Christmas Choir

This weekend we enjoyed watching The Central Alberta Homeschool Christmas Choir, directed by Debbie Zepick, which Rebekah was singing in.  They were performing in 3 different locations in central Alberta and were raising money for a boys orphanage in Mwanza, Tanzania. They were able to purchase 6 acres of land last year and should be able to build an orphanage this year.  All the boys and the couple in charge have been living in a rented house. If you would like to know more about Project Mwanza, click here.

The choir was accompanied by an orchestra.  They have been practicing since the beginning of September, for 2 hours a week and much more practicing this last week.

It was so beautiful and we were so proud of all the homeschoolers. Especially the little ones because that was a lot of standing and waiting for their parts.  There was 120 homeschool students in the choir and 30 more in the orchestra.

This was at their last performance in Stettler Sunday afternoon.

I was able to take a video of the choir singing, "Angels are Making Their Rounds" in Red Deer.  I was sitting too close and couldn't get the orchestra or all 120 choir members in the picture. Plus, my camera has not very good sound. But it will give all the grandparents an idea of what Rebekah has been up to. 

Rebekah was sad it was over, but she only has to wait 9 months to begin practicing again!


  1. 9 months will seem like FOREVER!!! I think we should practice all year long.
    God bless,

  2. Thanks for the video, Crystal! I love this song and they did such a good job!

    Merry Christmas!
