Rochester Light Up Night & Carol Sing Returns For 2021 This Saturday

The joy of song and the festive lights return to Rochester for 2021…albeit with a slight twist.

Rochester Area School District has joined forces once again with the Beaver Valley Choral Society to present Rochester’s Light Up Night & Carol Sing for 2021 after a year’s absence. The event will be held from 2:00-4:00 PM on Saturday, December 4, outdoors on the campus of Rochester High School along Reno Street. Beaver County Radio will be on site for the festivities, bringing their own with the Personality Prize Wheel.

RASD Superintendent Dr. Jane Bovalino joined BVCS President Lee Pfiefer & BVCS Artistic Director Sharon Burchill to discuss the 2021 Light Up Night & Carol Sing with A.M. Beaver County’s Matt Drzik.

The festivities will begin with the presentation of the colors by the Beaver JROTC right at 2:00 PM, followed by continuous music from the BVCS (principal choir, soloists, and Treble Youth Chorale), the Rochester High School choir, and the Rochester Area Concert Band. At 3:00 PM, all in attendance are invited to sing traditional Christmas carols to kick off the festive spirit of Christmas in Rochester.

Also, the RASD & BVCS are teaming up with Frye Transportation and Families Matter Food Pantry, and they are asking those in attendance to bring non-perishable food items to help in the “Fill-A-Bus Foodraiser” that will be taking place during the Saturday festivities. And it should go without saying that some jolly big man will be making an appearance Saturday as well…
