As the holidays creep around the corner, music fills the old gym at Barnesville High School. The holiday concerts come around every year, and there always seem to be mixed opinions. Parents appear to love the concerts and think they help bring the holiday spirit, but students often have a different view on the extended night. Choir and band concerts always fall on a Monday, which means many of the students have homework. They go home, do as much as they can get done, and then head to the school for what always ends up being a long night. This year, the sixth grade concert got postponed because of a storm, so their concert was packed into the same night as the junior and senior high concerts. Sophomore Jasmine Hegewald stated, “Between transitions and changing, it definitely gets stressful.” These concerts can be stressful for obvious reasons, but they aren’t always like that. There can be so much joy in these concerts, especially in the teachers’ point of view. Choir director Jennifer Gylland said, “I love working with the kids every day because they keep me feeling young, and I really enjoy when they love the music as much as I do.”

Some of the students are feeling the experience of doing things for the last time this year. Senior Hunter Wahl commented,  “The concert was definitely bittersweet. It was a lot of fun to perform with my friends and family, but it was sad to realize it would be my last holiday concert in Barnesville.” It has definitely hit some of the seniors that these are the last times they will do some of this stuff, but it isn’t stopping them from enjoying every second of it.

Overall, the concert went well and is always a joy to have during the holiday season.
