Eleven choirs in Princeton, N.J. including three from the University
have once again contributed music for "A Princeton Christmas:
For the Children of Africa Vol. 2."
This CD is a follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed inaugural
album by the student choral community. Proceeds will help support the
United Nations World Food Program (WFP) school meals initiatives in
"Last year, the inaugural album raised over $40,000 for WFP and provided
more than 160,000 meals to children across Africa," said Tom Meagher,
the organizer of "A Princeton Christmas" and coordinator for the volunteer-based
WFP Committee of New York. "We hope to surpass these figures and continue
feeding schoolchildren long after the holiday season is over."
The 18-track music compilation features holiday selections from the
Princeton University Chapel
Choir, the Princeton University Tigerlilies
and the Princeton University Tigertones.
The other eight Princeton-based choirs on the CD are: the American Boychoir;
the Princeton Day School Madrigal Singers; the Princeton Girlchoir;
the Princeton High School Choir; the Princeton High School Cloud Nine;
the Princeton Theological Seminary Chapel Choir; the Tartantones of
Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart; and Westminster Choir
of the Westminster Choir College.
The CD may be purchased at the Princeton
University Store. More information is available online.
