School Community Celebrates the Season

The Browning community joined together on December 20 in Temple Emanu-El for the School’s holiday program, led by Music Directors David Prestigiacomo and Lucy Warner. With “Dona Nobis Pacem” (Grant Us Peace) as its theme, this annual event began with remarks from Headmaster Clement and was filled with holiday cheer, including readings and performances by Form I Hand Chimes, Holiday Strings Orchestra, Starbright Strings, Tick-Tock Orchestra, Encore Performing Arts Group, Ovation Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, and Middle and Upper School Choruses.

The printed program cover (seen below) featured a Keith Haring painting created by a group of Browning boys from all three divisions. According to art teacher Zachary Davis, "The image is meant to illustrate the collaborative effort that went into this year's holiday theme project and obviously supports the idea of world peace."
