A time to celebrate the holidays in on its way, but until then students and their families can enjoy events such as the jazz concert. The students played holiday songs such as Deck the Halls, Here Comes Santa Claus and Frosty The Snowman. Eleven songs were played in total, most of them being holiday music.

Two groups of students played, Jazz Ensemble II then I. “We got the Christmas music in late November but we really didn’t start [practicing] until the first week of December for the jazz one group,” said Eli Redington, who played in the Jazz Ensemble I. “We have a lot of experienced players so it wasn’t all that difficult for them to play these pretty common Christmas songs.”

The Jazz Ensemble I group have spent less time practicing but managed to perform at the Jazz Concert.
