New West residents young and old joined forces in song on Tuesday night.
As part of the opening night festivities for the Anvil Centre's Winter Celebrations, New Westminster Secondary School music teacher Kelly Proznick organized and led a community sing-along. Representatives from a number of local choirs - including New Westminster Secondary and Richard McBride Elementary schools - turned out to help lead the singing alongside family, friends, neighbours and other members of the public.
The crowd joined in five pieces: Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, Coco Love Alcorn's Tiny Lights, This is Me (from The Greatest Showman), Silent Night and Auld Lang Syne.
Photographer Jennifer Gauthier captured some of the sing-along on video. Here are excerpts from Tiny Lights.
