In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, students at Emerson J. Dillon paused to perform holiday songs during their winter concert.
Under the direction of Liza Grethel, the Emerson J. Dillon fifth grade band opened the evening on Dec. 11 with folk songs and traditional carols.
The evening continued with performances by the fifth and sixth grade chorus, under the direction of Shirley Kelly, singing “Nutcracker Jingles,” “Secrets of Snow,” and “Sing Noel, Noel!”
Student Garrett Strang was given a roar of applause after his solo in the last song.
To round out the night, the sixth grade band performed under Kim Gould.
They played to their captive audience, “A Christmas Proclamation,” “Christmas Concerto #3,” “Dark Odyssey,” and “Christmas Stomp.”
