“She basically is this program,” Matthew Sepersky, class of 1997 said. “Karen is responsible for a life-long love of music.”

Wysocky was dressed elegantly in a classic black dress. She led Mixed Choir, Capriccio, Vivace! and the handbell choir through  tradition holiday songs including Joy to the World, O’ Christmas Tree, and Carol of the Bells.

“I love Karen and I love the choir,” said Austin St. Peter, class of 2013. “Making music together had a huge, huge impact on me.”

In front of a packed house at the Silver Lining Arts Center, Wysocky invited alumni on stage. “This is what you’ve been waiting for,” she said. Turning to the choir which squeezed on stage, some with babies in tow, the group belted out a heartfelt rendition of Hallelujah Chorus.
