Day 13: Holiday Concerts

Jay and I went to a holiday concert that the band, choir, and vanguard of his school was putting on. We arrived a bit late, and missed all but the last song performed by the band.
 Next was the choir, performing a selection of Christmas songs,
as well as selections from Beauty and the Beast.

 This young lady sang as "Belle",

and this young man sang as "the Beast".

For their final number, they had a group come out and sign the song while the choir sang.
Then the color guard came out and did a routine that they had been performing all year, called "The Dark Night".
The drum line was next, giving quite a good percussion performance.
Finally, the drum majors stepped to the front and led the marching band in a several selections they had performed this year, and, of course, the school song.

I would like to encourage everyone to go to a holiday performance in their area. Whether professional or amateur, they can be a lot of fun. And since many of them are performed at no cost to the public, they are a penny wise way to create some wonderful memories and share in a little Christmas cheer.
