Tis the season for singing
From Princeton Alumni Weekly's The
By Katherine Federici Greenwood
by the Princeton University Chapel Choir, the Princeton Tigerlilies,
and Princeton Tigertones are featured on a new CD of Princeton-based
choirs, “A Princeton Christmas: For the Children of Africa Vol. 2,”
whose proceeds will be donated to the UN World Food Program to feed
hungry students in Africa.
The Chapel Choir, conducted by Penna Rose and comprised of Princeton
undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members, sings “A Welsh
Lullaby,” “Spaseniye Sodelal,” and “Saints Bound for Heaven.” The Tigerlilies
contributed “On This Day Earth Shall Ring,” and the Tigertones provided
“Gabriel’s Message.” The Princeton musicians donated their time for
the effort. Last year, the first volume of the CD collection raised
more than $40,000 and provided more than 160,000 meals to students in
Africa, said Thomas Meagher, a resident of Lawrenceville, N.J., who
spearheaded the project. The CD is available at the Princeton University
Store and online at Amazon.com and iTunes.
Many of the Princeton singers will share their talents on TV this month.
The CBS Early Show plans to feature the Tigertones and the Tigerlilies
on Dec. 6, Meagher said, and the Chapel Choir will appear on “Toni on
the Holidays,” a New York-area special hosted by Toni Senecal that will
air Dec. 12 at 10:30 p.m. on Fox 5-WNYW and Dec. 20 at 10:30 p.m. on
