The concert, under the direction of Band Director Tony Randall, Orchestra Director Rebecca Martin, and Choral Directors Max Stimac and R.L. Rowsey, will feature many holiday favorites. This unique, collaborative concert will end with a nostalgic thriller as all the groups come together to perform a medley from Irving Berlin’s movie, White Christmas.
The funds raised from donations and ticket sales will help defray the transportation costs of the spring trip to the Heritage Music Festival in Anaheim, California, where all WRHS bands, orchestras, and choirs will compete and receive national evaluations. The music department has incorporated participation in this festival as a learning tool and curriculum enhancement for many years.
For those who would like to support this effort but are unable to attend the concert, contributions may be made by mailing your check made out to the Wood River High School Music Department to Rebecca Martin c/o WRHS, 1250 Fox Acres Road, Hailey, ID 83333.
