Wind Ensemble Holiday Performance
As 2020 comes to a close, this is the time of year when we would typically be gathering for our annual holiday concert, but because of the current situation, this was not possible. However, even though we don't have our normal holiday concert setting, we in our band family wanted to share a performance with all the band families, boosters, students, staff, and community members. After everything we have persevered through this year, everyone needs to feel some joy, some peace, and holiday spirit. It is to this end that I arranged and put together a piece for the Wind Ensemble, and we have been working very hard on it in rehearsals. After refining all the parts, we had each student record a video of them performing their individual part. Then we spliced and edited it with the help of an editing company so that we could put together a "virtual performance." This is very challenging (as you can imagine) to get the timing just right, so that it appears that everyone is playing simultaneously, even though all the parts were recorded separately. The students worked very hard on this performance and we are excited to share the final product with you now.
On behalf of the entire band staff, we would like to wish everyone peace and joy this holiday season, and we wish everyone a healthy and safe break. We hope that this performance will put a smile on your face and help get you in the holiday spirit!
