With Christmas being right around the corner, the band department has been preparing for their annual Christmas concert. A huge part of Christmas is the music. As some of you may have heard, the sound of Christmas music fills the halls as the band rehearses their concert pieces. This year, Mr. Knudson will be directing his first Christmas concert at BHS. Preparing for a concert is a lot more work than people think; however, Mr. Knudson is very excited to share what the band department has been working on. “There’s a lot to do still, but the students have come so far from where we were at the beginning of the year. Now we just need to add the finishing touches, and I think we’ll have a marvelous performance ready,” stated Mr. Knudson. The concert will have many wonderful holiday tunes. The piece that is most challenging, according to Mr. Knudson, is, “Winter Wonderland, a tricky one for the high schoolers, since the piece was arranged for jazz band, not concert band. There are many practices and techniques that are unique to jazz that students have to learn about in order to perform this piece, but I know that we’ve come out stronger for it.” Come and hear these wonderful pieces be on December 10th at 7:00 P.M. in the new gym!
