Holiday concerts usher in season of good cheer
It’s hard to imagine celebrating the holidays without classic carols like, “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” or “Jingle Bells.” It’s also difficult to imagine elementary schools without music programs — and the talented teachers who help students embrace the arts.
While many districts have cut arts programs, the sound of music is alive and well throughout Atlanta Public Schools. Holiday concerts featuring jazz bands, orchestras, choruses and plays made this a busy week, but TalkUpAPS did peek in on a few performances, including the holiday show at Thomasville Heights Elementary.
Members of the school band, orchestra (above) and choir put on a rousing holiday show that kept parents smiling. Kudos to the music directors who kept everyone in tune and on key! Also, if you missed the amazing APS honors concert at Maynard H. Jackson High, watch highlights from the show on our Media Gallery.
