Members of the Barnett Elementary School Choir were busy before the holiday break.

They traveled to the KUSI-TV studios in Clairemont Mesa to tape for their holiday broadcast, “Songs of the Holiday Season.” The 24-voice choir was among 24 kindergarten through grade 12 schools in the San Diego viewing area that was chosen for this honor.

While in the studio, the group taped three songs: “O Christmas, Christmas,” “The Holly and the Ivy” (with a six-piece accompaniment, all played by students) and “Joy to the World.”

The Elementary Choir is under the direction of Ramona Unified School District Music Specialist Donna Ransdell.

The program aired on KUSI-TV (Channel 9/51) on Christmas Eve and twice on Christmas Day.

The choir also sang at the Ramona Oaks Park Estates Community Tree Lighting on Sunday Dec. 4. There they entertained a small crowd with traditional music for the Christmas/Hanukkah season.

They also performed in a combined concert with the Barnett Bobcat Singers, “Season of Joy,” on Dec. 14.
