The Jazz Ensemble will open the program with three pieces including a light Latin version of ‘White Christmas’, a swing chart based on the well-known ‘We Three Kings’ entitled ‘Comfort and Joy’, and a version of ‘Sleigh Ride’ from the Glenn Miller tribute album
“In the Christmas Mood”. The Percussion Ensemble will also be featured on two selections including a piece entitled “Kings” that includes an ancient form of Japanese drumming known as Taiko. A single large concert band made up of the members of the CHS Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble will end the afternoon performances by playing five traditional holiday favorites in symphonic and traditional musical settings.
