Updates from Upperclassmen: Gift of music has the ability to bring people together
What would you do if you could communicate with people in any language without speaking actual words? Music can serve as a source of comfort and a way to send a message with or without words, which is why it’s considered the universal language. Music is a big part of the lives of the kids here at the high school, and with winter around the corner, the ALHS music department will be hosting their annual winter/holiday program. The concerts are set for the 11th and 18th of December, starting at 6:30 p.m. both on Monday nights. The pieces chosen by Suzanne Mauer, Rebekah Crissinger and Erik Zinter reflect the festive spirit of the holidays and the essence of winter. It’s a popular custom during this time of year to value the gift of giving, so all are invited to come and enjoy our gift for you. The students hope to bring the community together by spreading warmth and joy to the audience as they enjoy our performance.
