CHS band performs Christmas concert Dec. 12
By Nathan Diebenow
It began to sound a lot like Christmas in Clifton on the evenings of Monday, December 12, and Thursday, December 15.
That’s because the award winning Clifton High School and Middle School bands performed their annual Christmas concerts.
The high school cafeteria was packed with parents, grandparents, students, teachers, friends, and perennial band supporters for generous helpings of holiday music.
The incredible high school concert on Monday opened with “A Christmas Festival” by Leroy Anderson, arranged by Robert W. Smith.
The student-musicians effortlessly blended a medley of long-time favorite Christmas carols: “Hark! The Harold Angels Sing,” “Deck The Halls,” “God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen,” “Silent Night,” “Jingle Bells,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Joy To The World.”
