John Watson, Reporter

Alden High School’s Music Department is doing their part in contributing to the holiday spirit with their annual concert series. On December 12th, the Alden High School Band and High School Chorus held their Christmas concert. The band and chorus has been practicing very hard for this concert putting in a lot of time and effort for everything to go according to plan. The band spent a lot of time preparing for this concert and making sure their pieces are well practiced. Senior Justin Mason said that he is very excited for the concert however, was a little nervous and hoping that it would turn out as expected for everyone. The band played “Midnight Sleigh Ride”,”Courtly Airs and Dances”, and “Sleigh Ride.” Chorus and Parkstreet Voices joined forces to perform “Riversong”, “The First Noel” and “Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella”. Parksreet by themselves graced the audience with the following numbers: “Do you hear what I hear”, “Dear Theodosia”, “Hallelujah Chorus” and ” River Silver Bells”. Overall the concert was a huge success. Congratulations to Mr. Larrabee, the Band and the Chorus for putting on another outstanding show!
