aCaroling Christmas on Express Yourself Teen Radio

“The Joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing each other’s loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of the holidays.”  - W. C. Jones


Julia hosts a Christmas hour of joyful choral singing. She first talks with Milan about the history of the holiday, then she segues into the teen-led acapella group, the Waves. Their mission is to introduce choral music to a larger audience with pieces by Eris Essenvalds, Ericsson Hatfield, and Violeta Parra. Julia starts the program with a layered recording of The First Noel where she sings all the parts followed by three songs sung by The Waves, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Carol of the Bells, and Joy to the World. The featured performers in the teen acapella group, The Waves, include

Cayden Sewell Naomi Coffman Maddie Garfinkel

Julia Howe  Aditi Shankar Lori Agbabian Lauren Thompson Miles Kaludzinski Lev Corliss Tarek Wilks Sarah Wolfe Claire Malaney-Lau


Finally, Julia interviews Cayden, the leader of the Waves, to discuss the importance of singing, choirs, chorus, and caroling. They encourage everyone to share their voice!

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin!
