Holiday concerts at school

B uckley Road will be alive with the sounds of the season as Whitehall schools host their annual holiday concerts next month.

The Elementary and Junior High Christmas concert will be performed at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11, and the Senior High Christmas concert will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13.

The concert on Dec. 11 will consist of both the band and the chorus and traditional holiday songs will be performed.

The concert on Dec. 13 will feature the high school band, chorus, select chorus and hand bells group.

Marc Pratt, high school band director, said the concert will open with John Rutter’s “Candlelight Carol.” He said the song, which is well known as a choral piece, will be performed by the band.

“It will be a nice adaptation of that piece and there will be a few surprises as well,” he said.

The band will also do its best Mannheim Steamroller impersonation, taking several traditional Christmas carols and “modernizing” them.

Both concerts are free, open to the public, and will be held in the high school auditorium.
