Belting out some fall tunes!

The Westside Christian High School Concert Band is entering it’s second year of existence and has already nearly doubled in size. Band members are currently working on a mix of fall and Christmas music, as well as exercises promoting a well balanced and precise instrumental ensemble.

Students in these pictures are playing Jazzy Holidays, an upbeat medley of Christmas tunes arranged in a jazz style. This chart will be featured at the Christmas Concert on Monday, December 11th, in the Westside Christian High School Gymnasium. Mark your calendars and plan to attend!

Handbell Ensemble

Posted on:

Janet Vreugdenhil kicked off the Handbell Ensemble’s second semester by bringing two new members, Dylan Maguire and Garrett Stevens, up to speed. Although neither have any previous handbell experience, they were sounding terrific halfway through their first practice!

The team is always looking to add new members to their musical group. Come join them on Wednesdays after school at 3pm!
