If you love to get into the festive spirit with some holiday music, then this might be for you!

Back in person after something of a more silent holiday season last year, and the students in the choir at Buena High School in Ventura, are now determined to lift ALL our spirits with a CD album fit for the season.

17-year-old Mariah Young, who is President of the Choir, told KCLU it's good to be back singing with others.

She says she didn't feel like singing during the pandemic, so making the album and singing with the choir once again, has "sparked passion."

"Students were devastated that they were not able to sing together in real-time during the pandemic. However, since we have been back at school, you can see students' spirits being lifted as we sing together in harmony and record beautiful music again," said Choir Director Kevin Downey.

The album, called Not So Silent Night, is the fifth volume released by students at the school - although there was a hiatus last year because of the pandemic.

It features has ten songs, some of which are Christmas and Holiday hits and some are penned by the students themselves and recorded at on-campus recording studio.

The physical CD is available for sale in the school's ASB store and library, and it's also available for download from iTunes or Amazon Music.

You can also watch the students perform live at their benefit concert on December 9, 2021, from 6-7 pm in the Buena High School McConnell Auditorium, located at 5670 Telegraph Road, Ventura, CA 93003. Masks are required for all audience members.
