“We are so looking forward to working with Fred Penner again,” said Dawn Flanagan, the school’s choir director.

“His music is timeless and loved by kids of all ages. His interactions with children he is singing with and children he is singing for are full of kindness and warmth.”

The performance will also feature 75 students from kindergarten who will be on stage for four songs.

“They add just the right amount of cuteness and sparkle to the show,” said Flanagan.
