More Music in Guilford

After rescheduling twice, the PCMS/PCHS Holiday Concert took place last night… and even included some great moves by fourth graders who performed a choreographed version of “In the Spirit.” Nice moves kids!

Those who braved the night were also treated to some great band music, two jazz numbers, and the PCMS Chorus. Most would admit junior and high school bands usually aren’t very good but we try to encourage them. Well “ours” are exceptional and therefore exceptions and they earned the enthusiastic applause.

One could almost hear the shifting in seats when “Santa Meets Sousa” was introduced. Can you imagine traditional Christmas Music played John Phillips Sousa style?  No? Well, you should have been there because it “worked” and sounded great!

The evening concluded with something of a competitive sing-along (audience versus all the kids). I’d like to tell you the audience won. The kids were pretty enthusiastic though. So the “safe” conclusion is that everybody won! I know I felt like I did!
