Celebration of Community

CelebrationofCommunity_09Dec2015-6256On December 9th the YHS community gathered at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts for the annual “Celebration of Community”.

This annual event is the one time during the year that the entire community comes together. It’s a treat to hear our budding musicians perform in such a glorious venue, and to celebrate the spirit of the season together. View highlights from all the performances below.

CelebrationofCommunity_09Dec2015-6275The afternoon was interspersed with sing-a-long carols, a reading in French by Alex, Gr. 11, and a Sr. Improv Drama Presentation — a first for the Celebration of Community.

Special thanks to Leith Wheeler Investments for sponsoring this event. The impressive venue, carol singing, and festive atmosphere make for a wonderful holiday tradition. Watch the highlights below and view the full photo gallery.
