An audience of family members, peers and teachers filled the Lockwood Auditorium nearly to capacity for the Dec. 16 performance.

Although the overarching theme focused on traditional holiday songs, a performance of “Blue Christmas” brought the crowd to its feet.

Accompanied by sixth grade band members, Elvis (physical education teacher Dan Pawlewicz) took center stage as he belted out the 1968 hit.

Members of the Kenney Middle School fifth and sixth grade chorus entertain the audience with several songs during the holiday concert held recently in the Lockwood Auditorium.

Vocal soloists included Haley Hollenbeck, Andre Burns and Anastasia McCown.
