Cedaredge Middle School music students entertained parents and the public with their talents at the annual holiday concert held at the high school on Thursday, Dec. 8.

The 6th Grade Beginning Band started the evening's program and got the chance to display its new musical talents with a performance that included selections from 14 holiday favorite melodies.

The sixth graders displayed their new discoveries of learning ability and musical explorations as the show included melodies on the themes of Hot Cross Buns, London Bridge, and others. Sounds from the holiday season were included as well with familiar music of Jolly Old St. Nick, a bit of ethnic flavor with The Dreidel Song, the unforgettable Theme from the Nutcracker, and finally the nice melody of Jingle Bells.

The seventh and eighth grade choir performed an Israeli folk song and three Christmas carols ending its performance with a musical We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

The middle school's 7th and 8th Grade Advanced Band performed three numbers for its audience and concluded the evening's program with Centennial march.

Cedaredge music department director is Melissa Gross. Accompanist was Lesley Lewis and aiding the performance as low brass specialist was Grady Weizbrod.
