Pattonville High School choir director Melynda Lamb leads students through Christmas carols in Terminal 1 on Thursday, December 12, 2019.

A tradition that began more than 100 years ago still earns singing praises today at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). The St. Louis Christmas Carols Assocication started when William H. Danforth and a group of friends decided to bring joy and goodwill to neighbors by caroling outside their homes. Over the decades, the mission has bloomed to spread that goodwill and the harmony of community voices with performances in public venues across St. Louis. The Airport has been proud to welcome many schools and groups that have performed for our passengers and visitors over the years on behalf of the St. Louis Christmas Carols Association. Pattonville High School’s choirs, led by Melynda Lamb and Tracy Baker, scheduled multiple performances at STL this season. More than 30 performances are scheduled through December.   Schools, volunteer groups, and singers are often rewarded with donations, which the St. Louis Christmas Carols Associatoin then distribute to several St. Louis area agencies serving children.
