Highlights were Dragon Slayer by the orchestra, Jingle Bell Rock by the jazz band, Christmas Gift Rap by the chorus, and Diary of a Grumpy Elf featuring our very own by the concert band.
In addition to the evening performances, there were several special holiday performances. 7/8 Orchestra students performed at the PTSA holiday sale, 7/8 Select Choir students performed for the Retired Teachers of Island Trees Holiday Party and the Middle School PJ's for Play Fundraiser, and 6th grade band students traveled the building playing holiday music on our last day of school before the break.
All of the performing ensembles have been working diligently and the hard work was evident. The students were well prepared and their talent shined. Congratulations on a job well done!
