Middle School Sings like Angels

The middle school performed well at their Christmas Concert on the 13th this month. Throughout the evening the audience was in a trance, and music filled the air. The sixth grade started the evening out with a few songs; Three Polish Carols was definitely the audience’s favorite from the band. There was even a clarinet ensemble of six children, and they played a beautiful arrangement of Hark, the Herald Angels Sing. The crowd was very impressed with the talent showed in the young musicians. The sixth grade choir sang the popular song Do You Hear What I Hear.
