Start of the Holiday Season Kicks of Performances

The Patriot Band and Guard is in fulling swing going into December. After a brief lull due to Thanksgiving, the band has been getting ready for and performing in a variety of different venues.

Basketball season started this past week, with the OVMS Band performing at a boys basketball game, and the HS Pep band performing both Friday night for the boys and Saturday night for the boys and girls games.

Saturday during the day, the boosters held their annual Craft Fair in the middle school. The jazz band performed Saturday at Spencer's downtown Christmas parade performing jazzy versions of "Deck the Halls" and "Up on the Housetop" from a float.

This week will see members from Owen Valley Jazz perform at the Lion's Club dinner on Tuesday.

The HS Pep Band has two more basketball games before break, this week on Friday and on 12/14.

Finally, the whole program is preparing for their holiday concert on Sunday. Start time for the concert is 2:00pm with students reporting at 1:00pm. The Band Boosters are hosting a pre-concert lunch beginning at noon on Sunday. Cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students. RSVPs are a must so please contact Mr. Thompson early this week with your requests.
