Christmas Choir Flashback: Mainland Regional High 2013-2019
Let's take a look back at Christmas past, with the Lite Rock Christmas Choir Spotlight Flashback.
Because of the pandemic, there won't be any live South Jersey school choirs coming in to sing on the Lite Rock Morning Show this year.
But, we have tons of precious Christmas moments from years' past in our vault and on YouTube, so I will be featuring live recordings of school choirs from over the years, weekdays at 8:40 a.m., and spotlighting flashback videos in this blog series.
The Lite Rock Christmas Choir Spotlight Series started shortly after I began on the Lite Rock Morning Show in 2004. For several years, the choirs from Absegami High School and William Davies Middle School came in to sing live on the show each Christmas season.
Some of those early choir performances included the entire 75-100+ members of the schools' choirs jamming in to the tiny Lite Rock studio, while overflow choir members would stand out in the hall and sing. It was a fun chance for the students to see the inside of a radio studio and for listeners and parents to hear the kids singing Christmas carols live on Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG.
In 2012, we started to invite other schools to join our choir lineup and we began video taping their performances.
MAINLAND REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR
This is the latest in a series of flashbacks videos of South Jersey school choirs coming in to the studio to sing Christmas carols live on the Lite Rock Morning Show with Eddie Davis.
Mainland Regional High School's Choir has been coming in for several years to sing carols on the Lite Rock Morning Show and it is always a fun and entertaining visit.
Under the director of Amy Melson, about 15 students in the select choir will join us for an intimate morning of classic Christmas songs. They are a talented bunch who deliver such a tremendous vocal performance that we'll remember all year long.
They are usually very busy planning for their winter concert and keeping up a full schedule of caroling stops at places like Shore Medical Center. This year, of course, things are different for the choir students at Mainland and for us all, so we want to show you some flashback videos of their performances over the past four years on the Lite Rock Morning Show.
The videos selected are from Mainland's appearances in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019.
Enjoy and make sure you share this your Mainland friends and alumni.
