MINCOQUA - What's the holiday season without some Christmas carols?

The third Annual Carols in the Commons at Lakeland Union High School brought together hundreds of people together Monday night.


Students in the music department got the chance to sing many songs like "Joy to the World." The newly re-named a cappella choir; the "Thundatonix" got the chance to perform.

"Well, it's just so much fun to see everyone in the audience just get that joy while we're singing to them and they're in the Christmas spirit and they're just all so happy. It's great to bring that to them," said "Thundatonix" senior Bethany Mestelle.

Learning all of these songs didn't come easy. All of the students had to practice for hours in order to be performance ready.

"A lot of students have been asked to really just take their music home and learn things on their own time and they've really been showing, you know, great initiative and responsibility by doing those things and preparing for this concert," said Choir Director Jennifer Boots.

Also participating in tonight's event were students from the Culinary Arts Program. All sixteen of them prepared food like bruschetta, garlic honey meatballs, and cookies. They also served food and kept the audience full the entire night.

Some students said this event is an opportunity to learn more about working in the real world as cooks.

All proceeds from the event will be going to a local non-profit organization.
