CF To Present Christmas Concerts
McConnellsburg Middle School and High School bands will be performing their annual Christmas chorus concert Wednesday evening, December 18, in McConnellsburg High School auditorium. There is no cost for this concert, donations will be gladly accepted.
The middle school band opens the program with two classical Christmas pieces, “Wooden Soldiers on Parade” and “The Echo Carol.” Two familiar tunes, “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Frosty the Snowman,” follow. The two most challenging pieces are next, “Holiday Hoedown” and a different version of “Go Tell It On the Mountain.” The middle school band concludes its portion of the program with the familiar “Feliz Navidad.”
The Spartan marching band will next play its Christmas march, “Jingle Bell Rock.” The senior band takes over the stage, featuring two classical Christmas pieces: Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Reed Flutes” and the traditional “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” A more jazz flavor concludes the concert with five enjoyable tunes including “Jingle Bell Jazz,” “Blue Christmas,” a medley entitled “Home for Christmas,” White Christmas, and finally “Christmas Time” with Charlie Brown.
