On December 12th, the jazz band went to Kennedy, McKinley, Eisenhower, St. Andrews, and Abilene Middle School. The ensemble played four songs: Go Tell it on a Mountain, O Christmas Tree, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and Angels We Have Heard on High. Some students had solo breaks, where they performed improvised pieces. The band also played these tunes at the winter band concert on December 16th for the public.
