Blake High School’s A Cappella Choir Goes A-Caroling

It’s the holiday season which means lots of great holiday music.

MyMCM went in search of a high school choir to get everyone in the proper holiday spirit. We approached James Hubert Blake High School in Silver Spring about singing a holiday song for our cameras. They were very appreciative for the opportunity.

Led by choir director Drew Gatlin, here is Blake’s choral ensemble A Cappella! with their rendition of “Here We Come A-Caroling.”

James Hubert Blake High School is Montgomery County Public Schools’ Signature High School in the Fine Arts and Humanities according to the school. Their Fine Arts signature program features an outstanding music department whose mission is to provide diverse students with multiple and varied opportunities in the performing arts.

A CAPPELLA! is a highly competitive, small auditioned ensemble that performs a wide variety of challenging a cappella repertoire. Students must demonstrate superior vocal technique and advanced sight-reading skills. A CAPPELLA! members reflect a wide array of Blake’s student population and represent all aspects of the school from athletics to theater.

Gatlin attended Blake High School as a student before studying Music Education and Music Theory at the University of Maryland, College Park.
