Busy Weekend On / Near the Green - Part 2

by Chris Cain
December 19, 2018

As advertised, here is the second installment of highlights from a busy weekend in downtown Holliston.  In addition to the musical offerings inside St. Mary's, a great light show goes on outside around the green.

Mr. Kevin Lyczak, St. Mary's Director of Music, led the evening's presentation.  Nationally-renowned organist Brandon Santini performed a solo recital and then accompanied the musical portion of the program.  Below, Mr. Lyczak watches as Mr. Santini performs one of his solo offerings.

Pictured below, Mr. Lyczak conducts the Adult, Youth, and Children's Choirs as they perform the 14th Century Carol, 'In Dulci Jubilo.'  St. Mary's Contemporary Ensemble accompanied the congregation as they sang, 'Creator of the Stars of Night.'

Outside St. Mary's and all through the center of town, holiday lights twinkled.  Trees along Washington Street from the Town Hall west to Exchange Street are covered in lights - most white and some blue.

Some may have noticed last week that the trees in front of Fiske's had gone dark. The lights had been ripped from the trees by a passing truck.  Not to worry, Ed Daniels and the Light Up Holliston elves, including helpers from JJ Galvin Electric, replaced the lights and, as seen below - all is merry and bright again.  Holiday magic comes in all forms - thank you.

Whew, this was a great weekend to be in Downtown Holliston to take in the cultural and electrical presentations!
