In a normal year, students of our incredible music program would be rehearsing or presenting their repertoire to a live audience, and celebrating their hard work and dedication to the arts. Despite this year being anything but normal, our Concert Band students have been working diligently in school to prepare a few Christmas Carols on Percussion Instruments. While our remote work focuses on improving on our chosen wind/percussion instruments, in person students have been doing a deep dive into the world of percussion, gaining a greater appreciation for its difficulty, and improving rhythmic/reading skills. Knowing that students had this music for 3 weeks (6 total classes) before recording this, I'm beyond proud at their resulting performance. I hope you enjoy "Carol of the Bells" and "Swinging Jingle Bells". Happy Holidays!
