Two flutists and clarinetists played Christmas classics as attendees settled in the gymnasium.

The orchestra opened the concert with songs “Battle of the Ancient Dragons” and “Jingle Bell Rock.”

The song “Struttin’” featured a component for bass players called “slap the bass” which created a unique string sound.
