On Dec. 13 the orchestra performed their annual holiday concert. Several groups performed at this concert such as the string quartet, chamber orchestra, ninth grade orchestra, eighth grade orchestra and symphonic orchestra. The concert took work from not only the many students involved but also the orchestra director, Kelly Detwiler, as well as parents and the music parents’ association.
