MEDINA – Members of the Senior Center of Western Orleans met Monday for their Christmas lunch and entertainment by Medina High School’s A Cappella Choir.

The seniors enjoyed lunch of appetizers, beef on weck and desserts, followed by the choir’s performance. Tunes included several traditional Christmas songs, a lively number titled “Please Come Home for Christmas,” a sing-along and a piece featuring soloist Gabe Mark.

Lee Smith, vice president of the Senior Center in Medina, and president Lynn Creasey preside over the monthly meeting prior to dinner and entertainment by Medina High School’s A Cappella Choir.

Entertaining the seniors is an annual tradition for the A Cappella Choir, whose director is Rachel Trillizio.

“Last year we couldn’t come, so the kids are especially excited to bring some normalcy back to the community,” Trillizio said.

The choir will perform its annual Christmas concert for the community at 7 p.m. Sunday at St. Mary’s Church. Their holiday concert at school will be at 7 p.m. Dec. 21.
