In addition to serenading as a group, members of Girls’ 21 from Cherry Creek High School closed the performance by surrounding the luncheon tables holding hands with attendees. At this table are CCRW members Virginia Grimsley and Natli VanDerWerken.
Angelic voices belonging to the members of Cherry Creek High School’s Girls’ 21 choir were delivered by chartered coach to Glenmoor Country Club for its traditional Cherry Creek Republican Women holiday serenade. Members and guests were treated to American favorites as well as German, Latin and African renditions. The audition choir that devotes dozens of hours of rehearsal each week has established itself as one of the top high school choirs in the country. Under the banner of Creek’s distinguished fine arts department, the choir now numbers 45 girls and has performed at American Choral Director’s Association conferences numerous times. The high school’s entire music department was selected as a semi-finalist for the GRAMMY Foundation GRAMMY Signature Schools Community Award.
Director of Girls’ 21 Adam Cave said, “Our relationship with Cherry Creek Republican Women means a lot and one of the highlights of the choir’s spring performance schedule is a tour in March to San Francisco.”
Cherry Creek School Board member Karen Fisher, who introduced Girls’ 21, paused at the annual “Mitten Tree” CCRW’s holiday philanthropy filled with hats, mittens and gloves donated to children assisted by Doctors Care for Kids.
