Holiday band concert shows program is deserving of praise

Marietta City Schools and Band Director Chris Bunner are deserving of congratulations on the excellent Christmas Concert presented last Thursday in the High School Auditorium. Beginning with the Sixth Grade Band, followed by the Seventh and Eighth Grade Band and culminating with the High School Concert Band; the performance was top-notch. The solo piano performance by Miss Worstell was a nice addition as well.

Too often many of us focus on what we don’t have to offer in the way of educational opportunities but this talented group of young musicians provided a timely reminder that the holiday spirit is alive and well thanks to the dedication of parents, teachers and students.

Merry Christmas to all who participated!
