Exeter-Milligan Jr Sr High Christmas Concert

The Exeter-Milligan Senior High School Jazz band under the direction of Mrs. Angie Murphy.

Exeter-Milligan Junior Senior High Band held their annual Christmas Concert on Monday, December 17th.  The Jazz Band performed first with “Deck the Halls” and “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!”

The Junior High Choir took the risers and sang “Christmas In a Small Town” and “Christmas. . . In About Three Minutes” which included snipets of almost every traditional Christmas song.

The Senior High Choir joined the junior high students for “That First Nowell” and they were accompanied by Caitlin Murphy on the piano and Becca Krupicka on flute.  The Senior High Choir performed “By Candelight” and “Merry Christmas With Love” which featured Murphy and Natalie Staskal.

The Junior-Senior High Band closed out the evening with riveting performances of “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “The Nutcracker Suite,” and a “Celtic Carol,” before asking the audience to join them for a “Christmas Sing Along.” 

The sing along was directed by Exeter-Milligan junior Kayla Geiger.  After dismissing, the audience was invited to share in refreshments in the commons area.
