Dan McCarty School held its annual Christmas concert, “Winter Wonderful!” featuring the Chorale Ensemble and orchestra students. The program highlighted the musical diversity and talents of DMS students. The cafetorium was jammed-pack with parents, students and school staff. The orchestra performed traditional songs such as, Jingle Bells, Up on the Housetop, Jolly Old St. Nicholas, and When the Saints Go Marching In. The Chorus also performed traditional songs: Jingle Bells, Angels We Have Heard on High, Deck the Halls, Joy to the World, Hot Chocolate and This Christmas to name a few. The concert was put together under the direction of Dr. Rolanda Jones (Chorus Director) and Mr. Richard Rogers (Band Director). The performances were overall amazing.
Each year, all of the Westgate K-8 students line the sides of the parking lot to enjoy the Westgate marching band, the 8th grade carolers and of course, Santa. It is Westgate’s favorite holiday tradition.
