We were entertained last night (12/15/16) in the EAWR Auditorium in our annual Christmas Concert.  Leading off the evening was our talented Concert Choir directed by Mr. Alexander and accompanied on the keyboard by freshman, Morgan Ruden. The Choir was later accompanied by the kids from the Region III CLIP program who, as usual, had a blast performing. And, our impressive EAWR Percussion Ensemble used their talents in performing on marimbas (vibraharps?), a glockenspiel, and some other percussion instruments, playing their version of Carol of the Bells. 

We were also proud to welcome the Lewis & Clark Jr. High 5th Grade (beginning) Band, and their Concert Band. It's always nice to see the future of our EAWR band program, with Mr. Alexander later noting that several of our musicians were mentoring some of the L&C JH kids on their respective instruments. Thanks to District 15, Kim Hudson (Director). their musicians, and their families who helped us come close to packing the Auditorium last evening.

Finally, the EAWR Concert Band (also directed by Mr. Alexander concluded the concert, sounding wonderful, and putting everyone in the Christmas spirit just a little more. The band seniors also put their conductor in the season, with coffee cups and Keurig containers featuring their photos and a t-shirt and mug both featuring his "mug."
