Boutique to benefit Valencia High choir

Some might expect Valencia High School choir students to sing for their dinner if they embarked on any sort of fundraising.

Not this weekend.

Instead, choir members are selling crafts at their sixth annual Holiday Boutique to help raise money for the Valencia High School choral and vocal jazz program and, specifically, for a choir trip to Seattle in the new year.

The boutique, which every year features about 40 vendors, got under way Friday to accommodate students and teachers and continues today for the general public inside the gymnasium at Valencia High School on Dickason Road.

The doors open at 9 a.m. and stay open to the public until 4 p.m., featuring wall-to-wall food and craft vendors selling holiday goods, crafts, knick-knacks and some handmade clothing.

Valencia High School choir is an active group of six ensembles consisting of 200 students who perform nationally and around the community. Classes range from vocal jazz to world music.

These students plan to raise money for this year’s field trips and competitions, which include singing at Disneyland and throughout California. 

The boutique has helped facilitate several high-profile concerts over the past few years, including a singing engagement at the Vatican in 2009 and a special concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City earlier this year.
