Holiday Lunch Features Sweet Sound of Dimensional Harmony
In a joint event with the Delray Beach Republican Club, our annual Holiday Lunch featured Dimensional Harmony from Boynton Beach High School. Led by director Sterling Frederick, the 50 person a-capella group delighted the members with traditional Christmas songs as well as their own contemporary favorites. The pure tones and songbird quality of their soloist on "Silent Night" was riveting, and the uplifting harmonies of the group as they fanned out to surround the audience was memorable. We wish them well for their debut at New York's Carnegie Hall in March of next year. [easyrotator]erc_2_1419262514[/easyrotator]
